Hannah Bloomfield


Since completing her PhD in 2017 Hannah has worked on five research projects investigating climate related risks to the energy, insurance, finance and rail sectors. In June 2023 Hannah started an Academic track fellowship at Newcastle University which draws much of this work together to study ‘Climate resilient net-zero energy systems’. A key goal of Hannah’s work is to demonstrate how weather and climate information can be clearly communicated to end users including: industry professionals, other academics, policy makers, and the general public.

Her research interests include:

  • Characterising the impacts of climate variability and climate change on energy systems.
  • Modelling and assessing highly renewable energy systems in developing regions.
  • Early warning systems for highly weather-dependent systems.
  • Open datasets for weather-dependent energy system modelling.
  • Understanding sources of uncertainty in complex modelling chains.
