Hayley Fowler

Newcastle University


Hayley Fowler is Professor of Climate Change Impacts in the Water Resource Systems Engineering Group in the School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences. She is a hydroclimatologist with >15 years of experience in analysing changing precipitation extremes and their impacts on hydrological systems, and has published more than 80 ISI-cited articles since 2000. She held a NERC Postdoctoral Fellowship (2006-10) examining the links between atmospheric circulation patterns, extreme rainfall and flooding, was awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize in 2011 and Royal Society Wolfson Research Award in 2014. Her research into climate change impacts, downscaling methods, flood and drought forecasting and risk is funded by NERC, Defra, EPSRC, EU (>£8m). She has been instrumental in the analysis of climate model outputs and development of new downscaling techniques to bridge the gap between modellers and users of climate information (e.g. UKCP09 Weather Generator). She is an editor of PLOS One and Frontiers in Interdisciplinary Climate Studies and leads the GEWEX Hydroclimate Panel sub‐daily precipitation cross‐cut. She enjoys engaging with the public and gave the British Science Association Joseph Lister Award Lecture (2012/2013). She collaborates widely, particularly with NCAR, US, where she has held a number of visiting scientist positions. Hayley did a BA in Geography at Cambridge University (1996) before moving to Newcastle University for an MSc in Water Resource Systems Engineering (1997) and PhD in climate change impacts on water resources (2000), staying at Newcastle for her post-doctoral training.
