Academic Profile

In 2017 I graduated from Durham University with an MPhys Physics & Astronomy (First Class Honours). In the summer of 2017, I worked as an intern in the UK Met Office, developing open-source software for weather and climate scientists. I’m now a DPhil student in the NERC Environmental Research DTP, here in Oxford.

Current Research

I’m interested in building an inventory of impacts from extreme weather that can be attributed to anthropogenic climate change. This involves attribution studies of a variety of recent extreme weather events, determining what can and cannot be attributed to human-influenced climate change, and therefore what statements can be made about damages and liability, now and in the future.
