Prof. Jack, Reader and Director of Research in the School of Built Environment, leads the Heriot-Watt Drainage Research Group – one of only a few groups of its kind worldwide.

Professor Jack joined Heriot-Watt University in 1993 as a Research Associate working on an EPSRC-funded project that developed the fluid-system relationships defining the unsteady pressure regime within building drainage ventilation systems.

Since then, her research has centred around:

  • Modelling and simulation of air pressure transient propagation in building drainage ventilation systems
  • Site instrumentation and monitoring of building drainage systems
  • Water conservation
  • Response and performance of building and property drainage systems when subject to climate change impacts.

Dr Jack is also leading a key EPSRC project, DOWNPIPE, which uses the latest climate predictions to estimate the probability of various changes taking place and identify the areas where drainage systems for properties might be at risk of flooding.

Prof. Jack will be talking during Parallel Session 1 – Meeting the Hydro-Nation Challenge.
