Research Focus

Research interests relate to the application of freshwater ecology to solving challenges in river engineering.  Particular interests relate to how the physical environment influences the behaviour and physiological performance of fish, and how manipulation of that environment by engineering means can be used to mitigate for negative environmental impact of river development. Specific applications include investigating the influence of the behaviour and performance of multiple species/life-stages of fish on developing fish pass design, assigning compensation flow regimes, and improving habitat restoration strategies. Experimental and field-based research experience includes the assessment of the behavioural response of salmonids and anguilliform fishes to manipulations of structural and hydraulic habitat. 

Dr Kemp is responsible for developing a multidisciplinary research team. ICER acts as a hub for both research and enterprise in the area of fisheries engineering with extensive experience advising governmental and nongovernmental organisations on fish passage, including US regulatory agencies and Native American Tribes, the Chinese Ministry of Water Resources, the Swedish hydropower industry, and the EU.
