Personal profile


Dr Tory Milner is a Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography, who specialises in ecohydrology, river science, fluvial geomorphology, extreme hydrological events and community ecology. Tory joined the University of Huddersfield in April 2019, after previously working at the University of Worcester

Research Expertise and Interests

  • The interactions between riverbed morphology and invertebrate communities in natural settings.
  • The effects of anthropogenic activities (i.e. flow regulation, influxes of fine sediment) on physical habitat heterogeneity and benthic invertebrates.
  • The influence of streambed drying on flow intermittence gradients and aquatic biota.
