Personal profile

Academic Background

I'm a PhD student at the Climatic Research Unit (School of Environmental Science), working in collaboration with water company Anglian Water for my PhD project on drought risk in our changing climate. This includes analysing regional climate simulations, climate observation datasets and using these to drive an ensemble of hydrological models.

Key Research Interests

My PhD focusses on characterisation and quantification of drought risk and how climate change is affecting drought risk in the UK. Specifically, my work explores how important different sources of uncertainty are for projected changes of drought risk: GCM/RCM parameterisation, hydrological model structure, hydrological model parameterisation strategy and, crucially, drought definition and indicator.

My research interests genearlly cover climate change, climate dynamics, droughts and other extreme events, and interactions of the previous with humans.

Expertise related to UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. This person’s work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 13 - Climate Action
