Personal profile

Research interests

I am a NERC GW4+ PhD student interested in disaster risk in Small Island Developing States, investigating how flood inundation estimates could be improved in small islands under current and future climate change. I am currently developing a method for simulating flash flooding associated with hurricanes under 1.5 and 2 degrees Paris Agreement targets, using Puerto Rico as a test case.

During my Masters by Research (MScR) project I assessed whether a newly-released Digital Elevation Model TanDEM-X could be used to improve flood estimates in Small Island Developing States. I worked on creating a suitable method to process the TanDEM-X to a Digital Terrain Model for input into hydrodynamic model LISFLOOD-FP.
