Research summary

My research focus is concerned with global and regional climate change on scales of 100 years in the past, to 100 years in the future. Specifically, I research how climate change alters the atmospheric circulation, extreme events, and impacts on human health. I look at attribution of past climate trends and extreme events, and projected changes under future greenhouse gas emission scenarios. My particular focus at the moment is on how low emission scenarios, consistent with the aims of the Paris Agreement on climate change, may impact society through changes in health (heat waves, cold snaps).

I completed my PhD at Reading University in stratospheric dynamics in 2011, where my thesis was title 'Extreme variability of the stratospheric polar vortex'. I subsequently spent 5 years as a postdoc at Oxford University in the Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics (AOPP) department, and the Environmental Change Institute. I have now been awarded an Independent Research Fellowship (IRF) from NERC, the purpose of which is to study the link between the stratosphere and extreme weather at the surface. I am also a Lecturer in the School of Geographical Sciences.


I coordinate the HAPPI project ( aimed ...
