I am a Research Associate in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading. I am also a Part-Time Tutor for the Department for Continuing Education at the University of Oxford, teaching courses on Climate Science.
My research interests are the dynamical processes of the atmosphere in the extra-tropics and how they may change in a warming climate, with a focus on the impact of these events, e.g. flooding events and extreme windstorms. I completed an MSci in Physics at Durham University (Grey College) in 2007 before studying for an MSc in Meteorology at the University of Reading, finishing in 2008. I went on to complete a PhD in Environmental Systems Science at the University of Reading in 2012 on dynamically downscaling climate model data. As a member of the research staff I work closely with the (re-)insurance industry and other industry partners as natural hazards science consultant. I regularly supervise MSc dissertation students and have helped deliver a graduate school programme on project management. I have gained a Certificate in Research Career Management as well as attending a number of other training courses. I help out with outreach activities as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) ambassador as well as on behalf of the department promoting Meteorology, Physics and Maths.
"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather." John Ruskin
