Dr Margaret Kadiri is a Physical Geography Teaching Fellow. She completed her PhD in the School of Geography at Queen Mary, University of London in 2010. 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 for four years 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.

Prior to this, Margaret worked in the Department of Geography and Environment at London School of Economics. Combining field, laboratory and computational modelling approaches, Margaret is extending the scope of her research to examine saltmarsh resilience and to investigate how state shifts in saltmarsh distribution will be affected by future climate change.


  • Nutrient and contaminant cycling in estuarine and saltmarsh environments
  • Hydro-environmental impacts of tidal renewable energy extraction
  • Saltmarsh resilience to contemporary and future environmental change
