Meet the team
Alongside a Ph.D. in geographical information systems (GIS), flood science and applied mathematics from the University of Cambridge, Justin has extensive experience in developing high-technology software for insurance risk rating and loss modelling.
A regular in the media, Justin’s insights are often sought by both news and current affairs programmes in relation to flood events.
Having joined Ambiental soon after we launched, David’s expertise include flood risk modelling, loss modelling, GIS, spatial analysis, geospatial systems and process development. He has designed novel techniques to produce insurance-focused risk information and is responsible for developing and commercialising our modelling products in line with industry best practice. He works closely with clients to tailor or develop specific products to meet their specifications.
Technical Sales Manager
Mark developed his knowledge of flood mapping and GIS processes within our flood modelling team, where he started as a technical analyst and worked on the production of UKFloodMap4™ and other global flood risk products. This has given him a solid understanding of our products and the technical processes behind them, which he puts to good use in supporting clients.
Daniel has worked previously as an Environmental Consultant supporting EIA projects, but found he specialised in the production of Flood Risk Assessments supporting commercial, residential and power projects including renewables. Assessments conducted by Daniel have included GIS, numerical modelling and hydraulic modelling whilst analysing all sources of flooding fluvial, pluvial, tidal, sewer and groundwater to support projects. Daniel has a solid understanding of national policy, the NPPF (England), TAN 15 (Wales), PPS (Scotland) and PPS 15 (Northern Ireland) and regional policies for example, Policy F1 – Royal Borough Windsor and Maidenhead.
He has over 15 years experience in civil engineering with a background in drainage, infrastructure and earthworks design and flood risk working closely with clients, architects and contractors through all the RIBA stages from pre-planning through detailed design to construction stage site input. Mark is able to liaise closely with clients and architects to produce and site feasibility assessments leading to robust schemes and reports to support planning and tender stages.
Paul has wide-ranging experience of managing technical computing and data build projects in the United Kingdom. He is an expert in geographical information systems (GIS) with over 10 years of experience. He has a developed understanding of the environmental data industry and underlying technical concepts.
Having started his career as a hydrologist on hydropower schemes in Africa and Asia, he went on to work for the UK Environment Agency, developing their early telemetry, flood modelling and flood forecasting capability, and collaborating with the UK Met Office to improve the use of weather radar in flood prediction. He has worked on a range of policy, engineering and strategic flood risk management projects, and developed flash flooding warning systems for UK cities.
