Dr Beccy Wilebore

James Martin Fellow Postdoctoral Researcher

Department of Zoology

Beccy is a quantitative ecologist with a particular interest in geospatial science and spatial modelling. Her current work uses a land surface model to estimate rainfall runoff at high resolutions across Europe, and estimate the effect of landcover change on the provision of water-related ecosystem services.

Dr Tim Woollings

University Lecturer

Department of Physics

Tim Woollings works on atmospheric dynamics, studying mid-latitude features such jet streams, storm tracks and weather regimes. He studies the fundamental physics of these features but also more applied aspects, such as investigating how predictable different regimes are, how they respond to climate change and how well these features are represented in weather and climate models. Tim is part of the project IMPETUS: Improving Predictions of Drought for User Decision-Making.

Dr Aidong Yang

Associate Professor

Department of Engineering Science

Aidong’s interests lie in developing methods and tools for modelling biochemical processes and related systems and in applying models and other systems engineering approaches to support the development of sustainable energy, engineering and manufacturing systems. He is currently active in two particular areas: biological systems engineering and the food-energy-water nexus.
