Research summary

My research focuses on modelling long-term past and future changes in climate that occur over tens to hundreds of thousands of years. On these timescales, variations in the three main orbital parameters (obliquity, precession and eccentricity) act as a significant forcing on climate. Changes in the natural carbon cycle also need to be considered, along with the impacts of future anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. In order to model climatic changes over such long timescales, I use a combination of Earth System Models of Intermediate Complexity (EMIC), General Circulation Models (GCM) and statistical models (impulse response function for CO ...

I’m a Research Associate involved in a variety of research, ranging from modelling changes in climatic extremes over the next century, to modelling changes in past and future climate on timescales of hundreds of thousands of years or longer, to looking at tropical cyclone representation in climate models. My PhD focussed on developing modelling approaches to allow simulation of climate evolution ...
