Thomas Loridan is a lead scientist at Risk Frontiers who specializes in atmospheric hazard modelling with a particular emphasis on Tropical Cyclones (TCs). He holds a PhD from King’s College London where he studied models of the urban boundary layer. In the past 5 years Thomas’ work has led to the development of various techniques to simulate the variability in severe winds observed from TCs across the world’s most active basins. More recently Thomas’ research has also focussed on developing risk metrics for heatwaves in Australia.
