Professor of Climate Resilience
University of Birmingham
Professor Lee Chapman’s research interests are at the interface of climatology and engineering investigating the impact of weather and climate on the built environment; an important research area given the ever-increasing concentration (and vulnerability) of the population and critical infrastructure in urban areas. This covers a range of topics and sub-disciplines including infrastructure meteorology, urban climatology and climate change adaptation. Knowledge transfer and business engagement are at the heart of his research agenda and he continues to work extensively with industry to ensure maximum impact from ongoing research activities.
