Matt joined the South Cumbria Rivers Trust in March 2018 after 5 years working as a freshwater ecologist for the Environment Agency. He has a wide range of freshwater ecology experience, building on an MSc in Aquatic Biology and Resource Management. Matt has specialised in macroinvertebrate and macrophyte analysis (bugs and plants) and has an extensive knowledge of aquatic ecological, fisheries and water quality issues, including non-native species. He enjoys getting in the rivers and is looking forward to spending lots of time working out in the field in South Cumbria!
