Dr Hannah Bloomfield is a research associate in climate risk analytics at the University of Bristol, funded by the UKCFGI. Her research focus is on combined windstorm and flood risk across Europe and how this can be incorporated into catastrophe models.
Hannah has spent the last eight years working at the University of Reading studying the impacts of climate variability and climate change on national-level power systems including Europe, Mexico, and multiple regions of Africa.
A key outcome of her work has been to improve the accessibility of large meteorological datasets to non-specialists within the energy, insurance, and financial sectors. Hannah is passionate about science communication and has been involved in multiple international events to engage schools and the general public in climate science.
