Ali Rudd

Dr. Ali Rudd

Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

Ali's main research interest is hydrological modelling and analysis using continuous simulation rainfall-runoff models. Within Hydro-JULES she is part of the team investigating the role of the spatial pattern of precipitation forcing on hydrological and flood related uncertainties.

Dr. Alberto Martinez-de la Torre

Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

Alberto is a land surface modeller at CEH, focussing on the JULES LSM development and its use as a research tool for several national and international projects. Specifically under Hydro-JULES, he is working on the evaluation framework and the introduction of a dynamic groundwater scheme into JULES.

Dr. Steven Wells

Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

Steven is a mathematical modeller in the Hydrological Modelling and Forecasting group at CEH. His work on Hydro-JULES is in collaboration with NCAS, developing new algorithms to estimate hydrometeor properties using dual-polarisation radar data and their utility in improving flood modelling and prediction.

 

Toby Marthews

Dr. Toby Marthews

Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

Toby Marthews is a terrestrial ecologist and hydrologist at CEH Wallingford, UK. He is a task leader for the Hydro-JULES training task and heavily involved in improving the river hydrology of the JULES and other Hydro-JULES models

Dr. Ponnambalam Rameshwaran

Dr. Ponnambalam Rameshwaran

Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

Ramesh's research work focuses on river hydraulics, hydraulic and hydrological modelling and agro-hydrology. His specialistm includes developing and applying more practical and refined 2D and 3D numerical models based on mathematical equations for the most complex turbulent flow problems in aquatic ecosystems such as rivers and streams.

Dr. Jonathan Evans

Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

Jonathan Evans leads work on validating and improving soil moisture spatial products against in situ observations, with particular specialist knowledge of observations such as the COSMOS-UK network. He is very interested in applying root zone soil moisture products in agricultural advisory systems

Dr. John Wallbank

Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

John comes from a theoretical physics background and is currently in CEH's Hydrological Forecasting group which includes work on the Grid-to-Grid (G2G) hydrological model. Under the Hydro-JULES project he has been developing a method to use Cosmic Ray Neutron Sensors (CRNS) from the COSMOS-UK network to produce estimates of snow water equivalent.

Dr. Katie Smith

Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

Katie is a hydrological analyst and has been working at CEH for the past four years. Her research has primarily been on reconstructing and forecasting UK flows using catchment hydrological models, and she leads the UK Hydrological Outlooks team forecasting seasonal river flows using historic climate data. Katie's work on the Hydro-JULES project has been exploring methods of improving streamflow forecasting.

Dr. Majdi Mansour

The British Geological Survey

Dr Majdi Mansour is a groundwater modeller based at BGS Keyworth, Nottinghamshire. His expertise focuses on the development and application of numerical models in the saturated and unsaturated medium for water resources management and protection. 

Dr. Chris Jackson

The British Geological Survey

Dr Chris Jackson is a Principal Groundwater Modeller, and leads the Groundwater, Environmental Change  & Impact Team at BGS Keyworth.

Matthew Fry

Centre for Ecology and Hydrology

Matthew Fry produces, manages and delivers hydrological datasets, including rainfall, river flow and soil moisture and leads data elements of the NERC Drought and Water Scarcity Programme. Within Hydro-JULES he leads tasks to collate hydrological datasets and make them available within a collaborative infrastructure for hydrological research to deliver past and future scenarios for flood and drought assessment.
