Laura Devitt

Project: Understanding the impacts of hydrological uncertainties on large-scale flood mapping in data sparse regions

Supervisors: Dr Jeff Neal, Professor Thorsten Wagener and Dr Gemma Coxon


Laura will continue her studies at the University of Bristol having recently graduated with an MScR in Physical Geography. Her research project was entitled ‘Evaluation of a flexible hydrological modelling framework (DECIPHeR) in large and data scarce river basins: Upper Niger case study’. Prior to this she graduated with a BSc in Geography also from the University of Bristol. Her dissertation was entitled ‘Investigating model structural uncertainty using a two-dimensional evaluation criteria for extreme hydrological behaviour: Storm Desmond case study.’
