Post-doctoral researcher at the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford. She has a background in physical geography and climate change science and completed her PhD at the University of Cambridge on economic and social impacts of drought under future projections of climate change. Prior to her PhD she was a research assistant at 4CMR involved in numerous projects focused around the core themes of modelling economic, environmental and energy systems to assess climate policy. Katie is currently involved in the Tyndall consortium project ARCADIA (Adaptation and Resilience in Cities: Analysis and Decision making using Integrated Assessment), providing system-scale understanding of the inter-relationships between climate impacts, the urban economy, land use, transport and the built environment. Her main research interests are focused on modelling economic and social impacts of climate change with particular regard to extreme weather events; assessing consequences for adaptation and mitigation strategies from an interdisciplinary perspective; and climate change economics.
