Current PhD student

Jennifer Israelson

Jennifer is a PhD student at the Mathematics of Planet Earth CDT, Reading. Jennifer's research project is concerned with detection of the effect of climate change on the likelihood of extreme rainfall/temperature events in Africa, and subsequently of adverse agricultural outcomes. The project will also assess the representation of extreme events in TAMSARv3. TAMSAT-ALERT works by driving an impact model with multiple possible realisations of the weather, and then interpreting the resulting ensemble in terms of risk. This is a co-supervision with Prof. Emily Black (Department of Meteorology, University of Reading).
