Principal Hydraulic Modeller

Dr James Savage

James graduated with a Master’s degree in Geographical Sciences from the University of Bristol in 2011. After working at the Met Office and South West Water, James completed his PhD at the University of Bristol on the importance of spatial resolution and model uncertainties for flood risk modelling and decision making.

Following this, he worked for a major engineering consultant and worked on various flood and water resources modelling projects. In this role he was also the training manager and academic lead for their flood modelling software as well as providing software support for users.

At Fathom, James is currently responsible for running the Fathom-Global model and he is also developing stochastic models for a number of countries.
