Daniel HamiltonSenior Consultant
Your role in a nutshell: I’m responsible for hydrology in the Cardiff office – in this role I sign off all hydrological work before it is sent onto our clients, in addition to monitoring our LowFlows estimation service and helping with software support.
When you joined WHS: 2016
Your experience: I graduated from UCL with an Environmental Modelling MSc in 2015 and since joining WHS have developed technical knowledge in a range of hydrological methods. I am also familiar with the legislative framework governing a wide range of environmental issues across the United Kingdom and have specific experience in the preparation and delivery of Strategic Flood Risk Assessments (SFRAs). I am also well versed in hydraulic modelling, sustainable drainage design and numerous fieldwork techniques. I am currently working towards becoming a Chartered Member of the CIWEM.
Why you like working for WHS: The variety, no two days are ever the same! We’re often challenged on a day-to-day basis to come up with solutions for a range of environmental problems and there’s rarely a simple answer. The size of the company also makes it adaptable and responsive.
What drives you: I consider climate change to be a major threat to our future, and the opportunity to work in a role which addresses some of the challenges it poses is a big motivator for me. I am also always looking to learn new ideas from a range of disciplines.
What you like doing when not working: I’m a sports fanatic, I am a keen runner and follow football and cricket obsessively. When I’m not involved in sport, I enjoy live music, podcasts and trivia.
