Luke Jenkins a postgraduate research student within Ocean and Earth Science, University of Southampton, based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton.

I graduated from the University of Sussex in 2018 having completed a BSc in Geography (2014-2017) and an MSc in Climate Change, Development and Policy (2017-2018). My thesis explored the character of high impact rainfall events in central Kenya – What drives them and to what extent are they predictable?

Before starting my doctorate, I worked for the NERC/DFID (SHEAR)-funded research-to-action project ForPAc (Towards Forecast-Based Preparedness Action) – which aims to deliver improved forecast products and information platforms for decision makers in Kenya to enable a more anticipatory decision-making approach to climate hazards.

My current research project looks at storm clustering around the UK and aims to improve the understanding of the impact that sequences of storm events have on the dynamic response of hard and soft coasts.

Research interests

My research interests are centred around climate change, with a particular focus on the hydrosphere and extreme climatic events – exploring their relationship with climate change adaptation issues.

Research project: Storm Clustering and its influence on coastal morphology and defence
