I'm currently working on a PEN funded project, entitled "Searching for the deglaciation: spatio-temporal boundary condition uncertainty and its implications for understanding abrupt climate change", with Daniel Williamson (Exeter), Lauren Gregoire (Leeds), and Tamsin Edwards (Open University).

Research interests: emulating and history matching (calibrating) expensive computer models with high-dimensional output, quantifying spatial model discrepancy, implausibility-based ensemble design.


PhD, University of Exeter, September 2013 - March 2017
