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 am currently working as a Research Associate, having completed my PhD in 2017. My main research interests relate to how global and regional climates respond to changes in forcings over different time scales, and the potential consequences of these changes. I use a variety of different complexity climate models in my research, from General Circulation Models (GCMs) to statistical and conceptual models. Most recently, I have been investigating how extreme heat stress events in different regions may change over the coming decades following anthropogenic CO2 emissions, and the potential implications for society. My previous research has focussed on ...
