Sam Probert

PhD Candidate

university of birminghame

I am a PhD student at the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham, supervised by Dr. Nick Kettridge and working in collaboration with the Devito Research Group. My research project employs big data approaches to conceptualise and model water storage within the Boreal Plains to assess hydrological resilience and stability in response to climate forcing and catchment disturbance.

I have worked previously at the URSA (Utikuma Research Study Area) examining negative ecohydrological feedbacks to drying, which provide important mechanisms for the resilience and maintenance of Boreal Plains ecosystems. I enjoy interdisciplinary study and research of hydrology, ecology, and climate for the holistic understanding of aquatic ecosystem processes, function, and response to change.
