Research Themes
Teaching Summary

I am responsible for the MSc in both Climate Change and Environmental Modelling that are run by UCL Geography.

Undergraduate Courses
1st Year
GEOG1002 Environmental Systems and Processes – An introductory course providing a comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals of the Earth's atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere. I contribute lectures on weather, climate and climate change.

2nd Year
GEOG2020 Hydroclimatology – A course introducing the water cycle including components on meteoric water, surface water and ground water. I contribute lectures on the atmospheric water budget and climate variability.

3rd Year
GEOG3037 Climatology – This course describes the workings of the climate system and provides an introduction to climate modelling. I convene the course and deliver all the content. This course is not running in 2013-14

Graduate Courses
GEOGG120 Models in Environmental Science – A course aimed at introducing students to a broad range of environmental models, interspersed with hands-on practice and theory. I contribute a class on climate models.

GEOGG130 Climate Dynamics – A course focused on the climate system: how we observe it, how we explain and what we project for its future. I convene the course and deliver all the content.

GEOGG133 Past Climates – A course describes the previous history of the climate system along with techniques of palaeoclimate reconstruction. I contribute a lecture on role of climate models in palaeoclimate.

GEOGG134 Climate Modelling – Explains how the equations that describe the atmosphere and ocean are solved numerically to create meaningful predictions. Involves running HadAM3, so is heavy on the practical side. I convene the course and deliver all the content.
