Robert has been employed in the water and environmental sectors
since just prior to privatization of the water industry in 1989.
During this time, he has gained broad experience of environmental

worked for regulators (Environment Agency Wales and Ofwat), water
companies, academia and consultancies.
Most recently, the research he undertook for his PhD focused on
catchment management and how different methods of land management
can impact on environmental water quality.
In his immediate past role as Pollution Programme Manager with
the Marine Conservation Society he had overall responsibility the
pollution you can see (such as marine litter and sewage-related
debris) as well as the pollution you can't see (such as pathogens
from water companies' continuous and intermittent sewage
discharges, and diffuse pollution - including nitrates, pesticides
and pathogens - from urban and agricultural sources).
Robert is a Chartered Scientist, a Chartered Environmentalist, a
Chartered Water and Environmental Manager, and a Corporate Member
