I am interested in application of numerical and statistical modelling to environmental engineering problems. Many applications require and understanding of the risk of hazardous impacts, for example flooding from complex man-made or natural systems. My background is in stochastic modelling of rainfall fields at subdaily timescales, and I am keen to develop methods for improved assessment of flood risk.
