My research interests are in hydrology and hydrometeorology using advanced computer modelling and Weather Radars for flood risk management and climate change impact and adaption in water sector. I have been involved in and led several key UK and EU research projects of the fields, including EU FP5 FLOODLIEF, EU FP7 FLOODsite, FRMRC-I & II. More recently, I have completed a Knowledge Transfer Project funded by Innovate UK and Fujitsu Europe Laboratories Ltd on the use of HPC for predicting extreme storms and floods in Wales. I am currently a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society and responsible for the operation of the Welsh Centre of the RMetS.
My team at Swansea is a key research partner of the Met Office UK and we are interested in using their cutting-edge weather and climate models, such as UKV to support our research in extreme hydro-meteorological events and the impact.
In 2015, I was involved in the effort to set up the first Welsh Local Centre of the Royal Meteorological Society and have been the treasurer since then. I am also an editorial board member of the Weather journal dealing with papers in hydrometeorology.
