Personal profile


Adam is an earth and climate scientist working on the CRESCENDO project, in a role that combines research and science communication. His general interests include climate modelling, the carbon cycle, climate change resilience and climate change impacts (heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, floods). Adam’s role at UEA is split across two main activities: 

Research & communication: Using ScienceBrief.org, a new online platform developed at UEA, Adam’s role is to research emerging and rapidly evolving topics in climate change and post key papers on the platform to outline current understanding and consensus. This is augmented by the periodic publication of Rapid Response Reviews on ScienceBrief, providing a concise synthesis of the latest science. 

Carbon cycle modelling: The second part of Adam’s role is using the emergent constraint technique, with experimental data published from the sixth coupled model intercomparison project (CMIP6), to estimate the climate change feedback on the rate of oceanic uptake of carbon dioxide. 

Adam’s MSc thesis involved analysis of UKCP18 meteorological data and hydrological simulations, to characterise the future threat of drought in the Anglia Region. This led to his contribution to a report into decision-making uncertainty in water resources management, for Mott MacDonald. He previously worked in industry as a geoscientist, where he specialised in subsurface modelling, characterising risk and uncertainty in both technical (subsurface) and non-technical (socio-environmental) domains.
