About me

After graduating from Imperial College London with a MEng in Civil and Environmental Engineering with a year abroad at ETH Zürich, I joined the Hydrometeorology and Surface Processes Group in October 2021. I first joined the group as a research intern focusing on the study of climate change impact on the hydrogeomorphological response of a Swiss pre-alpine catchment. Since February 2022, I am contributing to the ‘Rainfall and Floods in Future Cities’ project as part of my PhD. My objectives are to investigate the characteristics of compound climatic events that trigger urban floods and to explore how urban development and climate change will impact floods in future cities using machine learning and stochastic weather generators.
