About Samuel Valman

My name is Sam Valman and I’m part of the second EPSRC CDT Geospatial Systems cohort based in Nottingham. My academic background comes from an undergraduate degree in Physical Geography and a MSc by research in Geography from the University of Nottingham. These focused on GIS, hierarchical cluster analysis and river systems. As I progressed through these, remote sensing and the geospatial systems approach became increasingly fundamental to the research I wished to do which led me towards this Geospatial CDT.


The CDT is providing the training and conditions for me to develop analyses at a greater spatial scale through being introduced to new software and developing my programming skills. This will enable me to develop my research by using riverine systems as a subject to facilitate exploration of global scale geospatial analysis.
