Personal profile

Research interests

My current research is on summer heat extremes in the UK. I am interested in how these extremes are changing, as well as how we can model and manage risks accosiated with extremes and heat stress. This work, part of the UK Climate Resilience Program funded OpenCLIM project, uses the latest UK Met Office UKCP18 simulations. 

My previous research interests have included climate hydrology (specifically the impact of soil moisture on temperate extremes), glacial hydrology (modelling the flow of water beneath Leverett Glacier in Greenland), Antarctic/Southern Ocean climate and oceanography (having volunteered as a research scientist on the RRS James Clark Ross on the ANDREXII cruise in the Weddell Sea in 2018) and palaeoclimatology (with a focus on Antarctic glaciation at the Eocene-Oligocene Transition).
