Claire is a Senior Research Associate at Newcastle University and SAGE Faculty Research Fellow in the Water Group and the Centre for Earth Systems Engineering and Research. She joined the school in 1999 as a PhD student; her thesis, 'Simulation and analysis of river flow regimes: implications for sustainable management of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) under climate change' was funded by NERC and investigated how climate change may affect river flows in the River Eden, Cumbria, and in turn assessed how these projected changes would impact on Atlantic salmon habitat. Prior to this, Claire studied Geography, also at Newcastle University.
