Two new NERC-funded PhD positions starting in 2018 are available with me and colleagues at Loughborough University, as part of the CENTA Doctoral Training Programme.
Applications for 2018 entry are now live. Further details on how to apply can be found here. Please see the links above for further details. The application deadline is 22 January 2018.
Looking forward to presenting my research at the Oxford Water Network seminar series! More details here.
I am an Associate Professor in the School of Geography and the Environment at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of Hertford College. I also maintain strong links with Loughborough University where I am a Visiting Fellow in River Science.
My research focuses on understanding and predicting changes in floods and fluvial systems in the context of contemporary shifts in climate and land cover. My approach is statistical and computational; I use data-driven methods to disentangle the different drivers of flooding and fluvial change across a variety of climates and land use types. Using Earth Observation and ensemble Climate Model predictions I also develop probabilistic forecasts to assess how floods and fluvial systems may change over daily to decadal timescales. I have a keen interest in data science and in developing new, interdisciplinary methods for understanding and projecting fluvial and hydro-climatic change. If you are interested in undertaking doctoral or post-doctoral research in any of these areas, please do send me an email or get in touch via Oxford’s Doctoral Training Partnership.
On these webpages you will find updates on my current research (below), Publications, Outreach and Media activities, Conference talks, and a short CV.
