Dr Natalie Lord
I'm a climate modeller, interested in how global, regional & local climates respond to changes in climate forcings over different time scales, & the impacts of these changes. This includes heat extremes, glacial cycles & cyclones.

Thesis: Projecting long-term past and future climate change within the context of post-closure performance assessments for disposal of radioactive waste.
Funded by Radioactive Waste Management Limited (RWM).
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 occurring over hundreds of thousands of years, and the potential implications of future long-term changes in climate for post-closure safety assessments for disposal of high-level radioactive wastes. I'm currently a member of the Climate Dynamics and Bristol Research Initiative for the Dynamic Global Environment (BRIDGE) research groups, and the Cabot Institute.
Before joining the University of Bristol, I worked as an Assistant Data Manager at a site investigation/environmental consultancy company. My primary role involved developing the data management and graphical reporting software used by the company (gINT Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental software), as well as user support and troubleshooting, writing of technical documents, training and marketing.
