Personal profile

Research interests

I am a climate scientist, with expertise in African climate systems and contemporary and future climate change. The goal of my research is to improve understanding of the impacts of climate change, to support sustainable and equitable societal transformation in changing environments.

I am particularly interested in developing research to support adaptation to changing hydroclimate risk in Africa, and developing science to inform international climate change policy.

Much of my work involves analysing processes and mechanisms of change, particularly in climate models. This work is designed to assess the plausibility of simulated responses to human-induced climate change, in order to provide more credible information for decision-making.
