Under Lee’s leadership we will deliver our commitment to train the next generation of water experts who will develop the knowledge, skills and interdisciplinary awareness to make a positive contribution to tackling water-related challenges.
On his new role, Professor Brown says:
In 2008 I led part of the water@leeds launch event and since then it has been a pleasure to see the centre grow. I am excited to bring my expertise and skills back to the director’s group to help water@leeds expand its position in the coming years.
He added, 'Directly related to the next generation mission, I led an EU funded Innovative Training Network for 15 PhD students from 2017-2022, placing Leeds at the heart of a 23 partner network of academics, businesses and regulators. One of my aims in the water@leeds AD role will be to share this expertise with Leeds colleagues.’
Directors Joseph Holden and Martin Tillotson say:
'We are delighted that Lee will be joining the leadership team for water@leeds. Lee brings excellent experience of interdisciplinary engagement and leadership and will facilitate the growth of our next generation activities as we tackle water challenges across a range of scales and with broad perspectives.'
