About meWater management researcher with a keen interest in histories, philosophies and politics. Am particularly interested in how the world's rivers have been engineered, and how water flows (uphill to money). Wish I had a second life to read all the books sitting on my shelfs.

About my libraryPrimary focus on irrigation, water and river basin management, especially older works.
