Profile photo 
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title 
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

I am 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.
