He will lead multi-national research projects to examine the effects of climate change on our weather systems and global landscapes and has more than 20 years’ experience of climate change research.

As the latest senior appointment to our new School of Geography, he will continue his research examining the links between global warming and major climatic trends, including extreme weather events and the persistent rise in sea levels.
