Dr Richard Lord

Senior Lecturer

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Personal statement

I joined the University in 2012 as Senior Lecturer in Engineering Geoscience, at title reflecting my broad interests in the application of engineering to societal challenges.  My research and professional interests include the remediation of contaminated land, identifying sustainable sources of renewable energy and other ecosystem services, and the exploration for, exploitation and environmental impacts of geological resources.  I am currently Director of Knowledge Exchange, providing a focus for the Department's external activities, including continuing professional development, consultancy and knowledge transfer.  I am also the Faculty of Engineering champion for Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, probably the best known of all University knowledge exchange activities (see www.ktponline.org.uk/).

My teaching duties include leading the "Energy Design Projects" for MEng & MSc Civil Engineering students and the "Independent Study in Collaboration with Industry (including Carbon Trusts SME Carbon Audit)" module for Enironmental masters students.  I am Course Director for the MRes programmes in Climate Change Adaptation, Geo-Environmental Engineering and Integrated Pollution Prevention & Control (IPPC).

What happens to groundwater chemistry during fault slip: implications for rock friction (£1.2K)
Stillings, Mark (Principal Investigator) Shipton, Zoe (Co-investigator) Lunn, Rebecca (Co-investigator) Lord, Richard (Co-investigator)
Mimicking the pressure changes in groundwater during earthquakes. Changes in groundwater pressure can trigger precipitation and dissolution of minerals, changing water chemistry and fracture surfaces. This in turn can lead to changes in rock friction, potentially increasing the magnitude of future earthquakes.
Period 31-Mar-2018 - 31-Mar-2019
Groundwater geochemistry changes during unloading due to reservoir drainage - pilot study (£7K)
Lord, Richard (Principal Investigator) Stillings, Mark (Co-investigator) Lunn, Rebecca (Co-investigator) Shipton, Zoe (Co-investigator)
