Image Hi, and welcome to my website! I'm a Research Associate in Nuclear Waste Safety, based in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol. My research focuses on modelling the long-term evolution of climate (from several thousand years up to a million years), in response to orbital and greenhouse gas forcing. I study changes in both future climate, in order to assess the potential implications for post-closure performance assessments for disposal of radioactive wastes, and past climate, such as those that occurred approximately 3 million years ago during the late Pliocene. For past climates, the model results are compared to climate data from paleo proxies as a way of validating the modelling approaches used.
