My core research is in Land Surface Science, which encompasses the interconnected aspects of Terrestrial Hydrology, Biogeochemical cycles and Land Surface Exchange. Within this remit, I have a special focus on extreme climatic events in the Earth System: particularly large-scale droughts and floods, which account for the greatest loss of life and property in the contemporary world. My aim is to achieve a deeper understanding of land surface processes within these contexts
Through my projects, I use and develop land surface models (LSMs) and hydrological models within the context of coupled climate simulations, working collaboratively with groups in the UK, India, Norway, US, Panama and elsewhere. Mostly, I use the UK model JULES https://jules.jchmr.org/ , for which I am a UK national trainer.
