Associate Professor of Geography, UCL

I am interested in how the climate evolved in the past and will do so going into the future. Like the climate, my career path has steadily evolved since its start in physics (BSc, Durham, 2002). I then studied coupled climate modelling (PhD in Meteorology, University of Reading, 2007), which combines physical oceanography with atmospheric physics. A post-doc in the Geology & Geophysics department at Yale exposed me to the true scale of Earth history.

I have been at UCL Geography since 2011, when I was brought in to launch two MSc programmes: in Climate Change and Environmental Modelling. I was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2016, and took on the Careers & Academic Support Tutorship in 2017.
