Teaching Fellows

Wood, Dr Joanne



Teaching Fellow in Physical Geography





Office: Bush House North East Wing, Room 5.13






Joanne joined King’s as a teaching fellow in 2017. Her research interests are broadly physical geography and have included glaciation, remote sensing of ice sheets, natural hazards and interactions between these and the climate. She has used techniques ranging from fieldwork, through to remote sensing, GIS and statistics. She graduated from the University of Sheffield with a BSc in Geography (2006), and then went on to study for an MSc in Climate Change and Risk Management at the University of Exeter (2008). Joanne completed her PhD in 2017 at the University of Exeter where her research looked at the effects of climate change on the magnitude and frequency of landslides in the European Alps.
