Irene Moroz

CUF Lecturer in Mathematics

My main research interests lie in time series analysis, in the bifurcation theory of nonlinear ordinary and partial differential equations, arising in geophysical fluid mechanics. There is a new, exciting possibility for potential DPhil students in a collaboration with members of the BBC climateprediction.net team, based in Oxford, to perform an uncertainty analysis of forecasting using data from climate models.

Mohammad Mortazavi-Naeini

Post Doctoral Research Associate

Mohammad’s research is to develop water system models for the Thames basin and on a national scale as part of the MaRIUS. The long-term goals are to assess vulnerability of different users to drought events in presence of deep uncertainty caused by climate change.
