Kelly Reynolds – a ScottishPower Foundation scholar
Kelly Reynolds studied geography at the University of Liverpool as an undergraduate. Not wanting to stop there, Kelly applied for the MSc Environment and Climate Change at the University and was also successful in her application to the ScottishPower Foundation Scholarship.
Talking about the fund, Kelly said: “Receiving the Scottish Power IBERDROLA Scholarship has meant such a great deal. It has allowed me to stay at a university I love without having to take on an additional job to help fund my studies. I can concentrate completely on my work, and then hopefully carry on to PhD level where I would like to pursue a career in research.”
Kelly’s dissertation reconstructs past flood events using data collected from a lake in Slovakia. Kelly hopes that by exploring how natural floods have progressed through time she can contribute to investigations into climate change.
