I am a Research Associate in the Hydro-climate Extremes group at the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford and in the Hydroclimatic Risks, Climate Adaptation and Resilience group at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), Potsdam, Germany. I develop, implement and validate simulation models to investigate changes to water-related risks (floods, freshwater availability, droughts) in the past, present and future, specifically related to long-term climate change. I hold a PhD in Hydrology from University College London (UCL), UK, where I also graduated with a BSc in Physical Geography (First Class Hons). I am an avid Python developer and have extensive experience in research software development and reproducible data pipelines. I live in Oxford, UK and you can find me in my office in the Oxford University Centre for the Environment.
