Range of Experience
Prof. Futter is a water quality modeller with extensive experience in model development and application. He is a key member of the INCA development team and has led or contributed to the development of models for nutrient, mercury and organic pollutant fate and transport. Most recently, he has been part of the development team for INCA-Tox, a generic, catchment-scale model for simulating the fate and transport of legacy and emerging organic pollutants. He is skilled in software development and environmental information management and has developed several tools for model calibration and sensitivity analysis. Martyn is an expert on European water policy including the Water Framework (WFD) and Floods Directives (FD). He has worked on stakeholder and sectoral responses to the WFD and the role of sustainable flood management in the FD. He has considerable experience developing strategies for communicating uncertainty to stakeholders. Martyn has been actively involved in the development and implementation of Water Footprint standards. He has specialist regional expertise in Fennoscandia, the Baltic States, the UK and Canada and sectoral expertise in forestry, drinking water supply, acidification and diffuse pollution. He has published widely with over 70 papers in the peer-reviewed scientific literature and is a guest speaker at a wide range of conferences and meetings.
