Projects per year
I am a PhD student at the University of Strathclyde looking at the compounding relationships between natural hazards, such as floods and droughts and heatwaves. More specifically, my interest lies in heavy rainfall events that follow immediately after prolonged droughts. I am interested in understanding the underlying physical processes as well as how we can build more resilience to these events, e.g. by integrating the knowledge into hazard forecasting or risk assessments. The primary focus of my studies lies on Australia which regularly experiences severe natural hazards like droughts, bushfires, heatwaves or floods.
My research is supervised by Dr Chris White (University of Strathclyde, UK) in close collaboration with Prof Hayley Fowler (University of Newcastle, UK) and Prof Seth Westra (University of Adelaide, Australia).
