Intern
 
Edward Jones studied BSc Geography at Lancaster University, graduating with First Class Honours, before pursuing a Master’s degree in Environmental Sciences at Wageningen University, The Netherlands. His academic interests lie in water resources management and hydrology, and in particular how climate change will affect water quality and the water-energy food nexus. Edward has recently completed his Master’s thesis, entitled ‘Drought impacts on river salinity in the southern US: implications for water scarcity’, whereby he aimed to include a water quality (salinity) dimension in quantifications of water scarcity, which have traditionally lacked water quality considerations, under different hydro-meteorological conditions. Edward joins UNU-INWEH as an Intern and he will be working under the supervision of Dr. Manzoor Qadir to assess future applications of unconventional water resources for meeting (quality-dependent) human sectoral demands, with a particular emphasis on the use of desalination in the agricultural sector.
