Research Interests

Phil's research interests are on how water, sediment and chemicals (such as nutrients and pollutants) move through the landscape. In particular, he is interested in how landscapes respond to changes in climate and land management, including the effects of wildfire and other forms of disturbance. He has undertaken research on soil nutrients dynamics and soil erosion, and the transport and storage of sediment and associated contaminants in agricultural, forested and mountain environments. Much of his research will be based at UNBC's Quesnel River Research Centre.
