Research interests include climate modeling, climate change, and interesting analysis methodologies. Extended interests in appropriate technology for Africa and scientific capacity building. Currently engaged with the CSAG research group in the ENGEO department. A bit of a techno-addict balanced by non-academic activities including just about anything to do with water (scuba etc.), or music.
