Catastrophe Model Developer

Conor Lamb

As a Catastrophe Model Developer in the Research & Development team, Conor plays an integral role in developing and expanding Fathom’s range of catastrophe models. His role involves working with lots of moving parts, ensuring they can be combined to create a fully functioning model. It’s this problem-solving that Conor particularly enjoys about working at Fathom. 

Conor originally joined Fathom in 2022 on a part-time basis while completing his Masters by Research in Civil Engineering at the University of Bristol. During his studies, Conor built a model using Fathom’s UK flood hazard data to explore the spatial and temporal dynamics of UK flood risk under socio-economic and climate projections. The research sought to understand the interactions between flood risk components; something Conor has continued to explore since joining Fathom.   

When he’s not at work, Conor can be found outside running or cycling, or playing water sports.
