Dr Margaret Kadiri is a Lecturer in Physical Geography. She completed her PhD in the School of Geography at Queen Mary, University of London. Her doctoral research examined the mobilisation and release of particle-associated contaminants in saltmarshes restored by coastal managed realignment in order to aid the development of comprehensive coastal zone management strategies.

Before arriving at King’s, she worked at Cardiff University as a Research Associate on a multidisciplinary project that aimed to provide a better understanding of the impacts of tidal renewable energy extraction on water quality and ecological processes in coastal environments and to find mitigating measures to minimise such impacts, particularly the risk of eutrophication by nutrient enrichment.


  • Nutrient and contaminant cycling in estuarine and saltmarsh environments
  • Hydro-environmental impacts of tidal renewable energy extraction
  • Understanding community acceptance of large-scale marine energy infrastructure projects. 

Margaret has extended the scope of her research to examine how large-scale marine energy infrastructure projects and host communities interact and shape socio-environmental outcomes at different scales and governance mechanisms of the projects.
