The Centre welcomes Dr Leon Kapetas, who has begun work with Dick Fenner on the newly launched EPSRC Urban Flood Resilience project (2017-2019). Leon is a hydrologist by training and has previously held a number of research roles in the UK, Peru, the Netherlands, Israel and Greece, most recently working on the 100 Resilient Cities project  in Thessaloniki, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. Leon has joined the centre for 3 years and will focus on aspects of urban flood management which sees stormwater as a valuable resource, and will develop methods for determining which is the most appropriate mix of blue-green and grey urban drainage infrastructure options  in specific UK cities. He will be joining a  larger collaborative team including researchers at Heriot Watt University, Newcastle University, Leeds University, De Montfort University, Nottingham University,  Open University, University of West of England and Exeter University.
