Lorna Kingsbury-Smith

Flood Risk Modelling Consultant

I’m a Flood Risk and Drainage Consultant at Aegaea with experience in hydraulic modelling and FRAs. My specialist area of expertise is Integrated Catchment Modelling and options development.

I am a Member of the CIWEM with over 6 years of experience in the flood risk sector. I have worked for both private and public sector clients which has provided a holistic overview of the flood risk industry. I have undertaken a variety of hydraulic modelling projects from full model builds, model verification using flow survey data to options development and appraisal.

I have a strong interest in Natural Flood Management and Green Infrastructure having graduated from the University of Leeds in 2019 with a Masters by Research specialising in Natural Flood Management. The research project used an integrated fieldwork and modelling approach to advance the understanding of the effectiveness of Natural Flood Management interventions in reducing catchment flood risk. I’m keen to transform those findings into practical solutions to positively impact those communities at risk of flooding.

I have worked on both small and large catchment scale projects including a catchment wide SuDS retrofit study in Mansfield. The Mansfield Sustainable Flood Resilience project is the largest study of its kind to date with the ambition to store over 58 million litres of surface water and reducing flood risk for 90,000 people. I was part of the hydraulic modelling team to deliver 1D model upgrades the development of 2D models to identify surface water flow paths across the catchment to enable strategically placed SuDS interventions.

In my spare time you will find myself and my partner along with our dog Emily, travelling around Scotland in our campervan. We love to explore new places and go for long walks along beaches, in forests and occasionally up the odd hill!
