Dr David Milan

Post Nominals FHEA
Biography David Milan is a fluvial geomorphologist, and obtained his PhD in 2001 from the Department of Geography, University of Newcastle. Whilst writing up his PhD he worked as an Associate Lecturer in Fluvial and Glacial Geomorphology at the University of Northumbria, and in 2001 obtained a Lectureship in Physical Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Gloucestershire. In 2012 he moved to the Department of Geography, Geology and Environment at the University of Hull, where he is currently Reader in River Science. David recently completed an Institute of Advanced Study Fellowship (2020-21) at Collegium de Lyon, University of Lyon, France.

Dr Milan’s research lies at the interface between fluvial geomorphology and freshwater ecology, and focuses upon monitoring and modelling fluvial dynamics, with special emphasis on sediment transport and associated geomorphic processes in gravel bed and dryland river systems. His research has utilised remote-sensing and has applied LiDAR to assess river bed grain-size, high resolution topographic change, and river habitat. Dr Milan is also involved with applied research into geomorphologically-based Natural Flood Management, assessing impacts of climate change on fluvial systems, and monitoring the impacts of large dams on fluvial processes and fish habitat.
