Flood risk intelligence
Dr Chris Sampson

Chris studied an MSci in Physical Geography at the University of Bristol, graduating with First Class Honours, before progressing to a PhD under Professor Paul Bates. His PhD focused on the development of catastrophe models for flood risk for the (re)insurance market.

It was through this work that the need for better flood risk analytics was identified, leading to the formation of Fathom. Since the companies formation, Chris’ work has led to him becoming a  leading expert in the development of large scale hydraulic models.
