Lian is Professor of Environmental
Science in the Urban Pollution Research Centre. Her research has focused on
sustainable stormwater management, the transport and behaviour of urban
pollutants and the use of multi-criteria analysis a decision support tool at a
national and international level.
Recent research has applied an
ecosystem approach within an urban context and begun to consider the use of
sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) as multi-functional ecosystem service
providers within the context of water sensitive cities.
Lian is currently co-ordinator of the
EU TEMPUS I-WEB project, supporting three universities in Kazakhstan to develop
Bologna-compliant integrated water cycle management MSc and PhD programmes.
She is co-lead of the Risk
Assessment and Policy Development working group of the wastewater re-use COST
action NEREUS. Lian is co-PI on a Sustainable Society network grant which aims to
develop and test a smart phone app to explore linkages between environmental
quality and community resilience. She has recently completed research grants
for Defra and the Scottish Government focussed on supporting policymakers to
implement an ES approach.
Learning & Teaching Interests
Water and air pollution (sources, effects, assessment and control of pollutants)
Multiple criteria decision support
Research Outputs & Interests
Lian's primary research interests are in the
field of urban environmental pollution and its mitigation using sustainable
drainage systems, sustaining the delivery of urban ecosystem services and
supporting practitioners and policy makers to address current and emerging
urban water quality and quantity challenges.
