Dr Christopher Lloyd
Chris graduated in 2003 with an MSci in GeoScience from Keele University, UK. Since then he has worked in a variety of sectors gaining experience in both scientific and non-scientific technical and logistical support roles. In 2007 he resumed academic study, and subsequently gained an MSc from the University of Edinburgh in Remote Sensing & Image Processing. From 2008 to 2015 Chris was a PhD candidate within the Department of Geography at the University of Sheffield, where he used GIS extensively in order to explore topographical and lithological controls upon the location and size of glacial overdeepenings (erosional depressions in the landscape that are created by glaciers). In 2015 Chris was appointed Research Fellow in the Department of Geography & Environment, University of Southampton, focusing on assessing the environmental and socioeconomic representativeness of networks of health surveillance sites across Africa and Asia. His work entails mainly spatial data collection, assembly, processing, and management, in support of modelling population distribution.
