My research investigates the climate of past warm periods to inform on future climate scenarios and possible abrupt changes based on a synthesis of data and modelling. Specifically, I use climate models of varying complexity (e.g. UKESM, HadCM3, FAMOUS and GENIE) to examine the sensitivity of the climate to different forcings using the PMIP protocol (e.g. greenhouse gas concentrations, vegetation changes). Furthermore, I look at the impact of abrupt changes caused by, for instance, increased freshwater forcing from the deglaciation of the Laurentide ice-sheet at the end of the last deglaciation. I also have an interest in climate ice-sheet feedbacks in the context of the Quaternary interglacials. 


In 2005 I completed an MEarthSci at Oxford University specialising in geochemistry and geophysics. I have always been fascinated by weather and so accepted a NERC studentship at Reading University and undertook a Masters degree in Applied Meteorology in 2006.  From 2006 until 2010 I completed a NERC-funded PhD in the School of Geographical Sciences, here at Bristol, on palaeoclimate modelling of the Greenland ice sheet. I am currently working in Geographical Sciences as a Senior Research Associate on the ERC-funded project T-GRES.  I have previously worked on the NERC consortium iGlass and the European FP7 project Past4Future.
