Overview

I am a research fellow in climate impacts with a focus on the developing world. My interests are in climate impacts, whereby we understand the broad scale changes caused by climate change but need to focus on how these changes affect human livelihoods. I apply climate change projections to various impact models to assess the impacts, these impacts are important for policy makers. These impacts also provide the general public with a tangible definition of how climate change will affect their lives.
