Experience


Senior Hydrologist at USGS Mississippi Water Science Center, MSApr 2022 - Present

  • Led a team of hydrologists in developing a new methodology for assessing the risk of floods. The methodology was used to assess the risk of flooding in 2,000 catchments across England and Wales.
  • Carried out research into the impact of climate change on flood risk and developed a model to predict future flood risks under different climate scenarios. The model was used by Defra (the UK government department responsible for environmental policy) to inform their decision making on flood defences.
  • Authored or co-authored over 50 peer-reviewed papers in leading scientific journals, including Nature, Science and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA.
  • Gave evidence to parliamentary committees on two occasions regarding proposed changes to UK Flood Risk Management Strategy. My evidence helped shape the final strategy which was adopted by parliament in 2010.
