Nicola Ellis
PhD Research Student

Profile

I’ve always been interested in how we interact with our environment. I studied geography with Exeter at the Cornwall Campus, then moved on to Durham University to study environmental risk. My master’s dissertation investigated the potential of soil to reduce flood risk in Northumberland in partnership with Northumbrian Water. The project, alongside experiencing my own home flooding twice, secured my interest in using our natural environment to manage floods in the UK. This led me to my current PhD in partnership with Devon Wildlife Trust and the Environment Agency, researching the natural flood management potential of Culm grassland in North Devon.
