The SeriousGeoGamers – The scientists behind the games
Chris Skinner – Numerical Modeller and Geomorphologist
Chris is a Research Fellow at the Energy and Environment Institute, University of Hull. He uses computer models to simulate how the Earth’s surface changes due to events like flooding. Large flows of water can cause material to be eroded and moved, changing the shapes of rivers, which in turn can influence future flooding.
Chloe is a PhD Researcher in the School of Environmental Science at the University of Hull. Her research is focused on the long-term evolution of coastal environments and has developed a numerical model – CEM2D – to understand the behavior of these systems and factors influencing rates of erosion and flood extents.
Florence Halstead – Flood Risk and Children’s Perceptions
Florence is a PhD Researcher within the Energy and Environment Institute at the University of Hull. Her research is investigating children’s perceptions and experiences of flooding in Vietnam and the UK, as she believes children deserve a voice in all matters that affect them. Before her PhD she worked with children as an Early Years Teacher, which she feels has helped prepare her for both her PhD and participation on the Earth Arcade Team!
Bas Bodewes – Physical Modeller and Geomorphologist
Bas is a PhD Researcher in the School of Environmental Science at the University of Hull. He uses physical modelling to understand how natural rivers respond to changes like flood frequency or flood magnitude and he attempts to incorporate the effect of near-river vegetation in these models.
Robert Houseago – Physical Modeller and Geomorphologist
Robert is a PhD Researcher within the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Hull. His research involves using physical laboratory based models (flumes), along with fieldwork, to further understand riverine and coastal environments. His PhD research focuses on the importance of working with nature to help protect coastlines.
Josh Johnson – Numerical Modeller and Geomorphologist
Josh is a PhD Researcher in the Institute of Energy and Environment ay the University of Hull. Using numerical models to simulate the formation of deltas, he studies how cohesive (sticky) sediment effects delta processes and shape.
Serena Teasdale – Physical Modeller and Geomorphologist
Serena is a PhD Researcher within the Energy and Environment Institute at the University of Hull. Her research combines field and laboratory based investigations to understand the role of biologically produced sediments (EPS) in shaping coastal environments.
