Caroline is a Grantham Institute Research Fellow. Her research interests are around climate variability and climate change in tropical regions, with a particular focus on exploring climate change related risk for populations whose livelihoods are strongly dependent on seasonal rainfall. Much of her work has focused on exploring the seasonal cycle of precipitation over Africa, looking at both past variability, model representation and projected future change.

Prior to joining the Grantham Institute in 2022, Caroline worked as a post-doctoral research assistant in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading, where she also completed her PhD in 2018 on "Characterising and Understanding Trends and Variability in African Rainfall Seasonality".
