Peter is responsible for managing APEM’s field survey teams throughout the UK. His career at APEM began in 2001, after working as an aquatic scientist for Thames Water. Since then Pete has led the development of robust field survey design strategies, particularly during the implementation of new techniques devised by APEM. This has involved developing strategies to classify fish habitats in UK rivers, new approaches to monitoring conservation species in SAC rivers, and more recently devising a methodology for identifying and mitigating the sources of diffuse pollution in rural locations. This research was integral in the survey design and implementation of the 2009 – 2014 EA Diffuse Pollution Projects, a pioneering approach to monitoring and mitigating diffuse pollutants in England and Wales. This approach was subsequently adopted by numerous NGOs throughout the UK that are engaged in delivering DEFRA’s Catchment Based Approach.
