Professor Coulon’s professional interests include: soil and water chemistry; fate and transport of chemicals in surface and subsurface waters; water and wastewater treatment; soil and sediment treatment; hazardous waste site remediation; energy and environment; population and environment; and public communication of environmental science and engineering. He has a track record in transdisciplinary research and he is recognised for his internationally leading contribution in Environmental Science and Bioengineering with a significant contribution towards the elucidation of chemical and biological processes in complex systems. His research has been supported by grants from industrial, government and Research Council sources, with core grant research support primarily being from NERC, EPSRC, Defra and EU. His work further influences policy development and provides pragmatic, risk-based solutions to remediate contaminated land. He has published numerous articles in leading environmental engineering and science journals; book chapters and articles for the popular press with substantive contributions to oil remediation, process emission and control at industrial sites and environmental risk management.
