  • At the heart of my research is the quantitative analysis of models and observations of climate change in order to constrain the future. The approach I am currently working on is to to generate "plausible" climate models through careful comparison of simulations and observations and use the properties of these plausible models to reason about future climate change. I am interested in extreme climate events and their causes for which I believe that high resolution modelling is the way forward. I also aim to improve my knowledge and understanding of the carbon cycle and try and develop ways of constraining its possible futures.
