Professional summary

Research Interests

  • mathematical modelling of physical processes
  • data assimilation
  • land surface processes
  • hydrology and flooding

Brief CV

I am currently working on the Hydro-JULES project https://www.ceh.ac.uk/hydrojules. My work is focussed on improving the representation of the processes controlling soil moisture in land surface models such as JULES. I also have experience of

  • running a hydrodynamic model for inundation forecasting
  • ensemble data assimilation
  • using earth observation data in a river flooding context
  • FORTRAN and Python

Qualifications

  • 2014- 2019 PhD (Part time): 'Improving flood prediction using data assimilation'.
  • 2000 -2002 PhD: 'Application of polymer ageing models to cable geometry and time-to-failure distributions'.
  • 1995-1999 MPhys Physics with Astrophysics.
