UCL Geography PhD student awarded grant from The Chadwick Trust
UCL Geography PhD student, Mohammad Shamsudduha, has been awarded a grant of £4863 from The Chadwick Trust to study "The impacts of climate change and abstraction on shallow groundwater dynamics in Bangladesh: implications for arsenic mobilisation"
The central aim of the research is to improve knowledge of the relationship between shallow groundwater movement and mobilisation of arsenic in water supplies of Bangladesh. Overall, this research seeks to reduce arsenic consumption in Bangladesh through improved management of shallow groundwater resources. Mohammad Shamsudduha is also the recipient of a EPSRC Dorothy Hodgkins Postgraduate Award and is supervised by Dr Richard Taylor and Dr Richard Chandler (Statistics).
