Hello and welcome!

Our research group investigates changes in climatic and water-related extremes (especially floods, heat waves, sea level, and other extremes) and water resources.

We develop computational approaches (data-driven, Earth observation, and ensemble-based methods) to understand how changes in climate, land cover and society affect climatic and water-related extremes over daily to multidecadal timescales. 

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
