My research focuses on the physical interactions between climate and water, with a particular interest in the physics and hydrology of lakes and reservoirs worldwide. This includes aspects such as climate-induced variations in lake evaporation, water temperature, ice cover, gas fluxes, and water levels, as well as how these will respond to future climate change. Using a combination of in-situ, satellite, and modelled data, my research aims to answer key questions that relate to climate-induced changes (e.g., extreme events, climate warming, atmospheric stilling) of inland waters and their implications for the ecosystem services in which they provide, such as the provision of safe water for drinking and irrigation, and economic benefits such as fisheries and tourism. Through this work I have active and on-going collaborations with groups in Europe and globally. I am an active member of the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON), and was a member of NETLAKE (Networking Lake Observatories in Europe; 2012-16) which now continues as a European community for those interested in high frequency monitoring of aquatic systems. I am a member of the core group of GEISHA (Global Evaluation of the Impacts of Storms on freshwater Habitat and structure of phytoplankton assemblages), and a member of the Executive Board of the International Society of Limnology (SIL). I am also Associate Editor for Inland Waters.
