Kelsey Flanagan’s scientific interests are centered around urban stormwater, including its pollution and management. Her PhD, which she defended in 2018 at Université de Paris-Est in France, focused on the retention and fate of micropollutants (both organic pollutants and trace metals) in stormwater biofilters. Since coming to LTU as a part of DRIZZLE Center for Stormwater Management in 2019, she has broadened her work with micropollutants to include investigating their accumulation in sedimentation facilities, such as stormwater ponds and gully pots. Kelsey also studies the hydrologic performance of green infrastructures used for stormwater management, through both field monitoring and modelling approaches. Further, she works with the use of sensor-based continuous water quality monitoring to improve the understanding of pollutant dynamics in stormwater and stormwater treatment systems.

Through her work, Kelsey hopes to contribute to a better understanding of the hydrologic and pollutant processes within stormwater control measures in order to provide a basis for improving both design and maintenance practices.
