Tom Willis is a hydraulic and hydrological modeller who has worked for consultancy companies working on a variety of flood modelling problems, from global flood mapping to evaluating proposed flood defences for local councils

His PhD from the University of Leeds was looking at sources and impacts of uncertainty in flood inundation models. He has recently been involved in the FLOODMAL project in the School of Geography, looking at using flood models to drive

He is involved in the Calderdale NFM project and will develop hydrological and hydraulic models to evaluate the impact of land use approaches and NFM interventions on runoff rates and flood risk levels in the catchment
