The GLAM crop model


My research focusses principally on using climate modelling and process studies to understand food production and food security, treatments of uncertainty and managing risk, and climate-resilient pathways and adaptation. My aim is to contribute significantly to the knowledge and policy base for sustainably strengthening the food security and health of populations vulnerable to climate variability and change. I do this by working with experts in a range of disciplines, from epidemiologists and ecologists to social scientists and economists. I also endeavour to communicate work in my field, for example through advising on The Rough Guide to Climate Change, speaking at public events and being interviewed on the radio.
