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.
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.
