By Lou Brett, University of Strathclyde

?We want to hear from you and your exciting research! Always wanted to make your research more visible? If you’re interested in joining the CompoundNET early career network, or even featuring as an EC of the month, this is your chance to ?️ fill out this form.

Our Early Career Researcher (ECR) of the Month for April 2024 is Kanzis Mattu!

Kanzis is currently in the 2nd year of her PhD at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Kanzis’s research topic explores multivariate compound cold-wet and cold-dry events in the UK.

Kanzis’s work lies in characterising multivariate compound cold-wet and cold-dry events in the UK, using daily gridded observations from HadUK-Grid to explore the frequency and spatial distribution of these events. The Met Office’s Decider forecast tool is then used to identify the predominant weather patterns present at the time of events. The results will provide a useful insight into compound cold events for future early warning systems. 

Kanzis has also previously explored the impact of tropical cyclones on potential offshore wind farms. If you are interested in reading this paper, please find the link beneath:
