Virginia Stovin

Dr Virginia Stovin was appointed a lecturer at the Department of Civil at Structural Engineering, University of Sheffield in 1995, after spending the previous three years as a research assistant in the Department. Originally a Geography graduate from the University of Manchester, Virginia’s current research focuses on Urban Stormwater Management and Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS). Virginia is specifically interested in the technical performance of SuDS (particularly green roofs and ponds) and on strategic SuDS retrofitting. Virginia’s work is aimed at understanding the processes that control the quantity and quality of urban runoff in order to develop fit-for-purpose models of those processes and generate novel strategies to enable stormwater to be managed more effectively/sustainably.
