Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Rich Boothroyd is a river scientist interested in capturing the dynamics of fluvial systems. He has worked across scales from turbulence initiated by riparian vegetation to hydrometeorological hazards in tropical rivers. As part of the EVOFLOOD project he will apply remote sensing techniques to monitor flooding and morphodyamics at the global-scale. 


Rich completed his PhD at Durham University in 2017 under the supervision of Rich Hardy and Jeff Warburton. He joined the University of Manchester as a Lecturer in Physical Geography for the academic year 2018/19, before moving to the University of Glasgow as a Fluvial Geomorphology Research Associate in 2019.
