Doris was a PhD student working on the influence of water management on hydrological droughts. Her research area is inspired by water conflicts around the world and previously projects were located in water-scarce areas in developing countries. Currently, her focus is on groundwater management that proves itself to be influential during droughts. Examples of the UK, California, Texas, and Mexico were used to quantify the influence and in later final stages of the research, feedback of existing drought mitigation strategies will be examined.
The project was a collaboration of the University of Birmingham and British Geological Survey. In addition to the institutional support, Doris is also part of Panta Rhei network (Drought in the Anthropocene working group).
Doris published four papers:
