Research overview

Extreme value theory, Dynamical and Statistical downscaling, Climate modelling and Forecasting


I completed my undergraduate degree in Financial Mathematics at Lancaster University. During the summer after graduating from my bachelors, I completed a summer internship in the market risk management department of TMB bank. I found  this a highly rewarding experience as I saw first-hand how statistics was used in a number of different applications.  I then completed a  Masters in Statistics, again at Lancaster University.

I started my PhD in January 2011 with my research focused on the dynamical and statistical downscaling approaches of analysing the future wave climate of the North Sea. The project is a collaborative project between Lancaster University and Shell. My academic supervisors are Emma Eastoe
and Jonathan Tawn and my industrial supervisors from Shell are Nicolas Fournier and Philip Jonathan.
