Climate Change Modelling & Catastrophe Risk Management Course
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
LMS-EPSRC Short Courses aim to provide training for postgraduate students in core areas of mathematics. Part of their success is the opportunity for students to meet other students working in related areas, as well as the chance to meet a number of leading experts in the topic.
Natural catastrophes, environmental extremes and enhanced climate variability represent a substantial challenge for society. Mathematics is at the heart of the modelling, forecasting and risk assessment required to combine empirical observations with scientific knowledge about how natural processes place vulnerable sections of society at risk from catastrophic events. This intensive course for PhD students will describe recent exciting developments in:
- Time Series Analysis and Forecasting (Dr Patrick McSharry, Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, University of Oxford)
- Catastrophe Modelling (Milan Simic, John Alarcon, Shane Latchman, AIR Worldwide)
- Risk Management (Leonardo Garrido, GEM; David Simmons, WillisRe)
These will be supplemented by tutorials and guest lectures to highlight mathematical challenges in the areas of climate modelling and catastrophe risk management.
