Personal profile


Katie is a research member of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. Katie is currently working on the OpenCLIM (Open CLimate IMpacts modelling framework) project, which aims to develop and apply a first UK integrated assessment for climate impacts and adaptation.

Prior to joining UEA in September 2020, Katie worked as a Senior Research Associate at the Environmental Change Institute (ECI), University of Oxford. Projects included the Tyndall ARCADIA consortium project, where she developed an urban climate impact model for London; the EU FP7 project ENHANCE, where she developed an Agent Based Model for assessing surface water flood risk, insurance mechanisms and flood risk management options; and MaRIUS, where she modelled the direct and indirect economic consequences of drought and water scarcity for the UK.

Prior to this Katie completed her Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge modelling the economic and social impacts of drought events under future projections of climate change, and worked at the University of Cambridge at 4CMR (The Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research).
