Chloe Brimicombe is currently a PhD student at the University of Reading in Environmental Science focusing on Pan-African Heatwave Health Hazard Forecasting, but I also have looked into UK heatwave policy and research. Previous to my PhD I did a Climate Change: Environment, Science and Policy MSc at Kings College London, and previous to that I did a BSc in Computer Science/Physical Geography at Aberystwyth University. Elliott Sainsbury is a PhD student in the Meteorology Department at the University of Reading. My research project is titled: 'The Role of Post-Tropical Cyclones for European Extreme Weather' - This SCENARIO funded PhD aims to improve our understanding of the importance of Post-Tropical Cyclones (PTCs) from a risk perspective across Europe, identify the key drivers of historic interannual variability of PTC impacts across Europe, and to investigate how PTC impacts may change across Europe in a future, warmer climate. Gabrielle Powel is a PhD researcher studying natural flood management (NFM), in particular leaky barriers. Additionally, I am researching the relationships between flood-risk communities and water companies, and other environmental governing bodies. Wilson Chan is a PhD student in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading. I am particularly interested in the impacts of climate change on freshwater resources. My current research, funded by the NERC SCENARIO DTP with support from UKCEH and Anglian Water, aims to explore the use of a new approach - the storyline approach - to navigate uncertainty in hydrologic drought risk for the UK. My research identifies drivers of hydrological droughts in the UK and quantifies storylines of high-impact hydrological droughts in present and future climate.
