I am a 2nd year PhD student at the University of East Anglia in the Climate Research Unit (CRU). I have a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Exeter, where a module and project on the mathematics of climate change amplified my long-time interest in the area.

Research interests

My PhD research focuses on the Urban Heat Island effect, aiming to quantify this in cities across the world using satellite data and statistical methods. I am particularly interested in the impact of background climate and how this can be isolated from a number of contributing factors.
