I perform hydrological modelling of river flows using the distributed Grid-to-Grid (G2G) rainfall-runoff model and the lumped Probability Distributed Model (PDM). I am also involved with modelling and analysing data from Cosmic Ray Neutron Sensors (CRNS) which are deployed to measure soil moisture. At UKCEH I have enjoyed working on a variety of projects, including:
- Calibrating and assessing hydrological models.
- Assessing X-band radar precipitation estimates using hydrological models.
- Improving water routing in hydrological models.
- Calculating and improving catchment descriptors (FARL, SAAR, URBEXT).
- Supporting use of machine learning techniques to quality control environmental data.
- Using data from Cosmic Ray Neutron Sensors (CRNS) to estimate snow water equivalent.
- Using neutron transport modelling to understand and control the footprint of CRNS for soil moisture monitoring.
- Assessing the suitability of CRNS from the COSMOS-UK network for detecting space weather events.
Before this I worked as theoretical physicist, employing a variety of analytical and numerical techniques to study two-dimensional materials and their heterostructrures.
