Key Facts:

Sarah Halliday has a BSc in Geography and Mathematics from the University of St Andrews and an MSc in Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Management from King's College London. After the completion of her MSc, Sarah worked for two years as an Environmental Scientist for the consultancy firm Parsons Brinckerhoff. She completed her PhD on assessing the new insights into biogeochemical catchment process gained from high-frequency water quality monitoring in 2012 at the University of Reading. This work formed part of a wider EPSRC funded research project 'Novel technologies for in situ environmental monitoring: linking sensor development to improved pollutant transport models (EP/G019967/1)', involving colleagues from the University of Hull, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and the Environment Agency.

Sarah joined the University of Reading as a postdoctoral research fellow after completion of her PhD.

She is currently working on two research projects: the NERC Macronutrients project Turf2Surf and the on-going EU FP7 project REFRESH. On the Turf2Surf project her work is focusing on coupled nutrient cycling in freshwater ecosystems in terms of improved water quality modelling and on the REFRESH project parameter sensitivity within model simulations.
