Prodeo Yao Agbotui


My PhD is titled "Characterisation of flow regimes of the East Yorkshire Chalk Aquifer", and I am under the supervision of Dr Jared West and Prof Simon Bottrell. My project focuses on undertanding the flow zonation and the seasonal major ion geochemistry of the Northern Chalk Aquifer. The flow zonation is studied with open-well dilution testing, whereas the geochemistry is studied with loggers in springs and spring water sampling.

I have a background in Civil Engineering (BSc 2006 KNUST, Ghana) and Hydrogeology (MSc Leeds, 2010). Before coming back to Leeds for my PhD, I was involved in teaching and research at the Accra Technical University.

I also have experience in the conceptualisation, design and construction of fuel retail outlets.
