I have recently completed a PhD that focussed on climate change impact assessments, as applied to water resource systems. As part of my research I have developed techniques to improve these assessments including:
- Creating climate scenarios to investigate potential threats to water resource systems (foreSIGHT software)
- Identifying the critical changes in climate that will degrade systems
- Identifying operational changes to systems in response to changes in climate
This research has included the use of formal optimisation techniques, the specification of process driven and data driven models, and methods for decision making under deep uncertainty.
Since completing my PhD I have been applying these climate change impact assessment tools to agricultural, water and energy systems.
