Reader and NERC Independent Research Fellow, Bangor University

Dr Iestyn Woolway is a climate scientist whose research focuses on the physical interactions between climate and water, with a particular interest in the physics and hydrology of lakes worldwide. This includes aspects such as climate-induced variations in lake evaporation, water temperature, ice cover and energy fluxes. Using a combination of in-situ, satellite, and modelled data, his research aims to answer key questions that relate to climate-related changes of inland waters. He graduated from Bangor University (Wales) in 2011 with a BSc and MSc in Physical Oceanography and then undertook a PhD in Physical Limnology at University College London between 2011 and 2015. Dr Woolway is recipient of a number of prestigious fellowships including a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship (2018), European Space Agency Fellowship (2020), and a UK Natural Environment Research Council Independent Research Fellowship (2021).
