Abdullah Kahraman


Dr Abdullah Kahraman is an atmospheric scientist with a background spanning weather forecasting, modelling, severe convection research, and teaching.

He joined the Water Group at Newcastle University in 2019, to work on future changes in convective weather hazards in the UK and across Europe. He is mainly based in the Met Office Hadley Centre in Exeter, and particularly uses high resolution climate simulations (UKCP) in addition to various types of observations.

Recent findings from his research include an enormous increase in slow-moving intense rainstorms under RCP8.5, and high variability of regional changes in lightning across Europe.
