Overview

ICE Bristol City Club hosts an informal evening of social learning for the local professional engineering community. This event will provide the opportunity for guests to join three technical knowledge hubs, led by experts from Bristol-born company, Fathom, to explore the use of data to increase efficiency in flood risk modelling and management, and better understand flood risk, both today and up to 2100, under multiple climate scenarios

The hubs will cover:

  • Climate change with Dr Natalie Lord, senior climate scientist to explore the impacts future changes in climate might have on flood risk and how climate models can be used to assess future flood risk.
  • Inland flood modelling with Anthony Cooper, hydraulic model developer to look at building hydraulic models on national and global scales and how to rapidly assess flood impacts.
  • Coastal flooding with Tom Collings, coastal model developer to discuss characterising coastal flood risk using historical records, modelling tropical cyclone storm surges and utilising coastal flood maps for risk assessment.

Refreshments will be provided courtesy of Fathom.

Tom Collings

Tom is part of the technical team at Fathom. His particular focus is on coastal hazard; working on everything from defining boundary conditions for our global flood maps to building hydrodynamic models for tides, waves and surges. Currently, he is also working on the combined wind and flood risk model that Fathom has partnered with Reask to create, which sees tropical cyclone hazard data applied to inundation and catastrophe models.

Anthony Cooper

On a day-to-day basis, Anthony aggregating datasets, running models, reviewing code and checking results are optimised visually. Working at the forefront of model development, his role involves ensuring lots of moving parts fit and work together, and it’s this problem solving that he particularly enjoys about his role. Anthony brings a wide range of experience from both large engineering consultancies and government agencies to his role.

Dr Natalie Lord

Natalie leads everything related to climate at Fathom. She grounds Fathom’s models and datasets in the latest climate research so that they robustly account for future climate change. Natalie also makes sure everyone is up to date on all the latest climate science, sharing and explaining research not only within the business also with clients and other scientists around the world. Natalie is highly experienced in analysing climate data and applying it to industry and social challenges.
