Hello and welcome!

Our research group is interested in understanding the climatic and anthropogenic drivers of river systems and flooding. We seek to attribute and forecast changes in fluvial systems and hydrological extremes in the context of contemporary shifts in both climate and land cover, over daily to multidecadal timescales. We develop computational, data-driven and ensemble-based methods for understanding and projecting fluvial and hydroclimatic change.

On these webpages you will find updates on our current research (below), publications, outreach activities, talks/conferences, and some information about the group members and about me. If you are interested in undertaking doctoral or post-doctoral research in any of the above areas, please do check guidance here and get in touch!

Seminars Feb-Mar 2016

On Thurs. 11 February 2016, I’ll present “Climatic, hydrologic and geomorphic drivers of trends in flood hazards (UK/USA)” for the University of Minnesota Department of Earth Sciences 2015-2016 Seminar Series.

On Wed. 23 March 2016, I will present our new model for “Seasonal discharge forecasting in an agricultural watershed” at the Iowa Flood Center.

New position at the IIHR-Hydroscience & Engineering (Iowa)

On 1 July 2015 I will begin a new position as a postdoctoral research scholar in G. Villarini’s group at the Iowa Institute for Hydraulic research (IIHR – Hydroscience & Engineering, UIowa) in Iowa City. I will be working on the following research areas:

  • Streamflow/flood forecasting over relatively long lead times (monthly-seasonal), using the North-American multi-model ensemble (NMME) data
  • Assessing the skill of the NMME
  • Quantifying the agricultural/demographic drivers of flood losses
