Prof. Stuart Marsh is the Director of the Nottingham Geospatial Institute. He runs their Centre for Doctoral Training in Geospatial Systems, which will train 25 new PhD students over the next 7 years to be the leaders of the future. He teaches Nottingham's 200 undergraduate environmental engineers the basics of geology, environmental risk assessment, hydrology and hydrogeology. Outside the University, he sits on the Programme Board of the intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations on behalf of the UK, and has been involved in GEO since its inception in various different capacities. He also advises the European Space Agency on their development of the Sentinel 10 hyperspectral satellite, as a member of its Mission Advisory Group; when this is launched in the late 2020s it will bring his career full circle, hyperspectral having been the topic of his PhD in the late 1980s.

Stuart is a member of GEO DRR Working Group, supporting subgroup 1.
