Dan Power

Project: Identifying hydrological and environmental signatures from cosmic-ray soil moisture estimates

Supervisors: Dr Rafael Rosolem and Dr Miguel Rico-Ramirez

Background

Dan graduated in 2017 from the University of Birmingham with an MSc in River Environments and their Management. His dissertation was entitled ‘Climate Change in the Himalayas: Using a conceptual model to understand future impacts on Hydrological Drought in highly glaciated catchments.’ Dan also has a BSc in Environmental Conservation from Sheffield Hallam University.

Between his degrees, Dan spent three years travelling in Europe, South East Asia, India, Nepal and Australia. This experience allowed Dan to encounter different people and cultures, and has ultimately lead him to pursue a career in the Geosciences field, with a particular interest in hydrology.

Work Experience

Upon returning from travelling, Dan has worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Birmingham comparing catchment-scale observations and global-scale models in their ability to identify human influence on drought. Prior to joining the WISE CDT PhD Programme, he worked as a Data Quality Analyst at Bristol Water using data from the PR19 project.
