I am a research scientist with the Sea Level, Waves & Coastal Extremes group.

My research interests include:

*coastal extremes such as storm surge, storm waves, tsunamis and marine heat waves
*marine renewable energy
*the interaction of coasts and marine ecosystems with waves and other oceanographic processes
*how these processes will impact humans in a changing climate, and what information is needed for successful adaptation

In addition, I have a passion for communicating science, particularly the principles of risk and uncertainty as related to hazards and climate change. I have extensive experience engaging in international outreach and capacity building to a variety of audiences.
