Dr. Hall is a Hydro-Climatologist at the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management of the Vienna University of Technology. Within the ERC project she investigates spatiotemporal changes in hydrological regimes, their driving factors, and the relationships between interacting processes. In addition, she develops and manages a new comprehensive European flood database.
- Spatiotemporal analysis of flood events, regimes and changes at the European scale, using geospatial and geostatistical methods.
Statistical and process-based detection and attribution of drivers of observed changes in hydrological regimes.
- Analysis of climate and land related processes and their influence on hydrological flow regimes and extreme streamflow events. With the focus on when, how and why changes in drivers affect changes in flow regimes.
- Integrated analysis of eco-, geo- and hydrological processes and interactions, along with their role in driving flood regime changes.
Before joining the ERC project Julia Hall worked in the Irish Climate Analysis and Research Units at the National University of Ireland Maynooth, where she has also completed her Doctorate. Her hydro-climatology experience is complemented with her academic background in Geoecology.
