Jim Griffiths was born in South Wales (United Kingdom) and studied at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in the School of Geography at King’s College London. His doctoral research involved spatial modeling of pore-water pressures in shallow translational landslides (in SE England and SE Spain), with respect to climate and land-use change. He spent 5 years as a hydrologist at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology in Wallingford (formerly the Institute of Hydrology), where his research included development of continuous simulation rainfall–runoff models and investigation of surface water–groundwater interaction in permeable lowland catchments in the United Kingdom. From 2008 to 2011, he worked as senior hydrologist for a UK-based mining consultancy for which he conducted hydrological site investigation work in Sierra Leone, Congo Republic, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, Turkey, and Sweden and contributed to feasibility and prefeasibility level studies for a variety of mine developments in Northern Europe, Central Asia, Africa, South America, and Russia. He is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management (CEng, CEnv, CSci) and a lecturer in environmental sciences at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China.
