PhD projects

Alexander Milner’s research involves river ecosystems in alpine and Arctic environments and includes long-term studies in Glacier Bay National Park and Denali National Park in Alaska. The study in Glacier Bay represents the longest continual study of stream succession and development within a primary successional framework. Other studies have included how water sources are changing in glacially influenced river systems with climate change and how these changes alter ecological structure and function. Ongoing research includes:

Hydroecology of glacier-fed river systems in Arctic and alpine regions (French Pyrenees, New Zealand, Lapland and Svalbard)
Colonisation and development of new streams in coastal Alaska
Long term variation in benthic communities/upwelling channels of braided floodplains in Denali National Park, interior Alaska

Professor Milner welcomes enquiries from prospective doctoral researchers in his areas of interest.
