Cranfield appoints new water Professor

Posted: Friday 23rd October 2015

Cranfield University has appointed Ian Holman as Professor of Integrated Land and Water Management. Professor Holman joined Cranfield in 1994 as part of the Soil Survey and Land Research Centre, (formerly the Soil Survey of England and Wales), and since 2013 he has been a Reader in Integrated Land and Water Management.

Professor Holman’s current research focusses on understanding how interactions between land management, soil properties and weather effect water resources, water quality and agricultural yields under current and future climates. He had led contributions to a number of major UK government and European Commission funded projects relating to water and land resources, including NERC’s Droughts and Water Scarcity Programme and the CLIMSAVE web-based modelling platform.

Professor Elise Cartmell, theme lead for Environmental Technology at Cranfield University, said:

“Cranfield has been the home of excellent research on water management for some time. Professor Holman’s appointment reinforces our expertise, and I am looking forward to seeing how we can work together to enhance this important work now and for the future.”

Professor Ian Holman said:

“I am looking forward to the possibilities for new research directions and collaborations that this new appointment allows, and to continuing to contribute to Cranfield’s esteemed water and soil research.”

Cranfield’s excellence in energy, environmental technology and agrifood is recognised internationally. The University’s environment activities include centres of excellence in environmental risk and futures, and in water science.
