Water pollution, bioremediation and aquatic biodiversity

Faculty of Life Sciences Research Project. Water pollution and bioremediation, especially in urban watercourses. Working with an industrial partner on Salford Quays. Also working with a colleague in Geography.




Dr Keith White

I am interested in understanding and managing the water quality and ecology of urban watercourses, including preventing the formation of potentially harmful ‘blooms’ of blue-green algae. Work with an industrial partner is examining the relationship between past and present water quality and the changes in the ecology of Salford Quays – a restored and redeveloped dock system near Media City, Greater Manchester.
