Dr Debbie Clifford
Debbie has a research background with particular expertise in Earth Observation, data assimilation and climate services, and a strong interest in visualisation best practice. She principally works on large collaborative R&D projects with partners across the EU spanning academia, industry and the public sector. Debbie’s first degree was in Engineering Science at Jesus College, Oxford, and she returned to academia after a period spent working as a consulting civil engineer. Having obtained a Masters in Soils and Environmental Pollution (U Reading), she completed a PhD (also U Reading) on the use of satellite observations and climate models to understand global snow cover. This was followed by post-doctoral and applications development experience within the National Centre for Earth Observation.
