Ffrench graduated with a BSc in Environmental Science and Health from
Dublin City University in 2009. Daragh went on to complete his MSc in
Environmental Consultancy at Newcastle University in 2010. Daragh’s
thesis for his masters was entitled ‘A prediction model designed for contaminant transport in soil leaching from contaminant land sites in Newcastle city’.
Daragh’s main areas of expertise are contaminated land, environmental
impact assessment, digimapping and geographic information systems.
Daragh spent 6 months as a building surveyor for Miller Pattison and has
also worked for E3 Ecology, conducting bat and newt surveys while
studying in Newcastle.
a BSc in Environmental Science from Trinity College, Dublin 2011 and
will continue on with postgraduate study in Imperial College London
where she has been accepted into an MSc programme in Environmental
Claire’s thesis was entitled ‘The Pollution Status of Castletown Estuary’ where
she studied the pollution levels of the estuary using the Biological
Quality Index and Pollution Load Index as well as the blue mussel Mytilus edulis
as a bioindicator. Claire’s main expertise lies in Contaminated Land
and Water, Environmental Chemistry, Water and Wastewater treatment,
Environmental Impact Assessment and Hydrogeology. Claire is a member of
the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).
nominated by the Head of the Environmental Engineering Dept. in Imperial
College as an intellectual academic to represent them in a KIC-Climate
Scholars Programme across Europe. The programme starts with a six week
contextual learning journey across Europe where I will develop my
understanding of climate change issues in the context of each country.
Claire will be coached professionally to develop business skills and
work in groups to produce a business plan.
Emily Kerr completed a BA (Mod) in
Environmental Science in Trinity College, Dublin 2011. Emily
carried out a thesis entitled ‘The long term Carbon storage capacity of Lodge Bog, Co. Kildare’ which
involved depth measurements and a 6 metre core sample from the deepest
part of the bog which were analysed and measured to calculate the total
estimated volume of the bog and also its estimated carbon content and CO2
equivalent. This project was undertaken in conjunction with the Irish
Peatland Conservation Council (IPPC) and under the guidance of Chief
Executive Dr. Catherine O’Connell. Emily’s area of expertise lies
in Environmental Impact Assessment, Water and Land Contamination, Global
Environmental Change and Environmental Chemistry.
Kathleen Gregory graduated from St. Mary'sUniversity College
with a BA in Geography in 2007. She graduated from Queen's University
Belfast with a MSc. in Environmental Engineering in 2008.
Kathleen's M.Eng. thesis involved sampling a sandy soil and
ascertaining the moisture content of the soil using a relatively new
piece of equipment; the Denver 2000. This machine measured the
dielectric constant of the soil and this could be directly related to
the moisture content of the soil, through a calibration equation. The
computational data was then correlated with actual data, received from
sampling. During the sampling several tests were carried out, moisture
content tests, hydrometer tests and dry sieve analysis tests, using the
on site labs in Queens.
Her main areas of expertise are geography, soil
science, hydrogeology, environmental engineering, contaminated
land, computer modelling of contaminant transport, hydrogeology, water
and wastewater treatment and renewable energy, particularly wind turbine
Kathleen is fully competent in Microsoft office packages, Sage Line
50 and also in MODFLOW Software. Kathleen recently became a
qualified domestic energy assessor (Dip. DEA) and is due soon
to become an associate member of IEMA.
