I'm a PhD student at the Climatic Research Unit (School of Environmental Science), working in collaboration with Anglian Water for my PhD project on drought risk and its management in our changing climate. I make use of climate (model) data and hydrological models, including the hydrological modular framework FUSE, to investigate extreme droughts under climate change.
Aside from my scientific interests, I'm an active member of the UEA Scientific Python User Group and teach in the PPD Python courses.
Key Research Interests and Expertise
Generally I'm interested in hydrological climate change impacts and associated adaptation and mitigation strategies. Currently my main interests are drought formation and propagation processes, (extreme) drought characterisation, the interaction between climate change and (extreme) droughts, including their impacts on society, and how we can use climate and hydrological models to investigate these topics and their associated uncertainty.
