About me

I aim to combine field measurements, climate datasets and modelling tools to solve real-world problems related to climate change and its impact in mountain and other remote regions. I have experience in academic and applied sectors. Currently [2017-2018] I have a research grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation and working on assimilating satellite data into numerical models.


  • PhD Subgrid numerical land surface modelling, University of Zurich.
  • MSc Environment and Development, University of Edinburgh.
  • BSc Environmental sciences, University of Aberdeen.


  • High mountain processes under a changing climate.
  • Application of numerical land surface models in remote areas.
  • Subgrid processes.
  • Downscaling global climate datasets in complex terrain.
  • Assimilation of observations in to the modelling process.
  • Field measurements in tough locations.
  • From sensors to decision making.
