Hello and welcome!

I am a Lecturer at Loughborough University and 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 a multitude of ‘Big data’ sources 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 outputs I also develop probabilistic forecasts to assess how floods and fluvial systems may change over a range of timescales. I have a keen interest in data science and in developing new, interdisciplinary methods for understanding and projecting fluvial and hydro-climatic change.
