Affiliation: Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science


Camilla is a part time PhD student working in Exeter at the Met Office. Camilla joined the Met Office in Forecasting research in 2002 where she spent the first four years working in High-Res and Land were she completed a Masters in Applied Meteorology at Reading University. In 2006 she moved within data assimilation to the Middle Atmosphere group where she worked on ozone and developed an interest in climate timescales which prompted a move to climate research in March 2009.

Since joining climate research Camilla has worked on the ENSEMBLES project, AMAZALERT and the HighNoon project. This PhD, partly funded by the HELIX project, hopes to continue the progress made in understanding the changing water resources for Northern India and the Himalyas in the HighNoon project.
