Research summary

I am interested in probabilistic hazard and risk modelling, mapping and communication of risk, and decision making under uncertainty. I have written software for performing multi-hazard, multi-scenario volcanic risk assessments, and code to simulate exposure to respirable volcanic ash on Montserrat.

Other interests include Bayesian Networks and the use of expert systems for hazard evaluation and forecasting. Recent work has included development of a Bayesian Network to investigate the impact of alternative climate change scenarios on risk associated with deep geological repositories for nuclear waste, and applying Monte Carlo sampling techniques to volcanic conduit flow models.
