Current PhD student

Jessica Silva Lomba

Jessica currently holds a prestigious PhD studentship from the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology for developing research in statistics of extremes at the Centre for Statistics and Applications, University of Lisbon.

This is a joint supervision with Prof. Isabel Fraga Alves (University of Lisbon).

Former PhD students and Postdocs

Jennifer Israelsson (2021)

Jennifer was a PhD student at the Mathematics of Planet Earth CDT, Reading, whose 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 also assessed the representation of extreme events in TAMSARv3. The system for 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.

Jennifer's PhD was part of a co-supervision with Prof. Emily Black (University of Reading) and Dr David Walshaw (Newcastle University).

Evandro Konzen

E. Konzen was a Postdoc in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Reading working on research funded by EPRSC, from 2019 to 2021.
