Biography

I am the Met Office Academic Partnership (MOAP) Project Manager located within the School of Geographical Sciences. The theme of the MOAP is “Weather and Climate Science for Decision Making”. The Partnership aims to deliver the latest cutting edge research between the University and the Met Office. This is a varied role, which involves not only managing the administrative aspects of the collaboration but includes working alongside the MOAP Joint Chair and Research Advisory Panel to identify potential research opportunities between the University and the Met Office and see these through to development. I am a key point of contact for internal and external researchers, collaborators, funders and support staff.

Previously I worked as a Research Associate and Senior Research Associate for 8 years on the European Union funded project Past4future, the NERC consortium iGlass and the ERC-funded project T-GRES.  These projects investigated the climate and environment of past warm periods to inform on future climate and possible abrupt changes, such as sea level rise, based on a synthesis of data and modelling. Specifically, I used climate models of varying complexity to examine the sensitivity of the climate to different forcings using a standard protocol (e.g. greenhouse gas concentrations, vegetation changes) in conjunction with other models such the Glimmer ice sheet model. 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 have previously played an active role within the department representing the postgraduate and postdoctoral communities at School and University level.
