Haider Ali

Research Associate

Dr. Haider Ali is a Research Associate and RENKEI ECR fellow in the School of Engineering at Newcastle University. He has around five years’ experience in engineering and environmental hydrology in research with a focus on understanding the effects of climate change on extreme rainfall events and flooding. His research interests include trends, variability and physical understanding of changing extreme events, temperature scaling, monsoon systems, flood estimation design and water resources management. Developing methods for understanding the extreme precipitation and temperature relationships (scaling) using quality-controlled sub-daily precipitation data has improved physical understanding of global rainfall climatology and resulted in several high-quality publications. This work was featured twice as Editor’s Highlights (2021 and 2022 respectively) on Eos. Haider is also interested in climate impacts and risk, working on the INTENSE (global intense rainfall and drivers), FUTURE-DRAINAGE (flash flooding) and Hydro-Climatic Projections (CMIP5 downscaling) projects. He is currently working on the GCRF Living Deltas project, improving the understanding of the change in tropical cyclone activity and monsoon over the South-east Asia Deltas. He also manages the logistics for the analysis and climate modelling advice for the Living Deltas Hub. He has a h-index of 13 (Google Scholar) from ~16 ISI-cited publications.
