Dr Iestyn Woolway's research focuses on the physical interactions between climate and water, with a particular interest in the physics and hydrology of lakes worldwide. This includes aspects such as climate-induced variations in lake evaporation, water temperature, ice cover and energy fluxes. Using a combination of in-situ, satellite, and modelled data, his research aims to answer key questions that relate to climate-related changes of inland waters. He graduated from Bangor University in 2011 with a BSc and MSc in Physical Oceanography and then undertook a PhD in Physical Limnology at University College London (2011-2015). Dr Woolway was then a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading (2015-2018). In 2018, Dr Woolway was awarded a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship, hosted at Dundalk Institute of Technology (Ireland), followed by a European Space Agency Fellowship in 2020 - based at the ESA Climate Office in Oxfordshire. In 2021, Dr Woolway was awarded a UK Natural Environment Research Council Independent Research Fellowship. He joined the School of Ocean Sciences as a NERC Independent Research Fellow (Reader) in 2022.
