Post Doctoral Researcher
Dr Mark Wyer studied catchment nutrient dynamics for his MSc in Canada and his PhD in Wales. As a post-doctoral scientist, he has pioneered UK investigations into catchment microbial dynamics and delivery of faecal indicator organisms and pathogens to near-shore coastal waters. He has published over 100 scientific papers and reports in this area and completed associated work on the health effects of marine and fresh water recreational activities.
He led the work on real-time modelling of bathing water quality which took the Swansea Bay study site in the EU-funded Smart Coasts project from and ‘at-risk’ bathing water to a consistently ‘Good’ classification. Mark is managing the Wales field teams for the Acclimatize project and will lead on data collection, collation, cleaning, analysis and reporting. In his spare time he loves hill walking and playing acoustic music.
