Chris Skinner

Chris Skinner is a numerical modeler at the University of Hull (UK) with experiences ranging from hydrometeorology to geomorphology. He is particularly interested in how sediment processes contribute to the evolution of flood risk. He is also a keen science communicator and leads the SeriousGeoGames Lab, which uses new and emerging technologies to share research. His fellowship funded by the University of Hull will draw on all these experiences to develop a novel modelling framework that forecasts sediment impact on flood risk and to share this information to communities at risk.

Blame it on the Weatherman

I like rain. Being British, this is a useful trait. It’s also what led me to do a PhD in Hydrometeorology. Since then, I have researched in hydrology, hydraulics, geomorphology, and more recently I have dabbled in sedimentology. Yet, the common theme through all of my research has been rain. I think it’s often underappreciated by those of us more interested in dry stuff like sediment and rocks, bu ...[Read More]
