James Martin Senior Fellow
Constance’s research examines forest governance and its intersection with climate policy. This includes comparative studies of evolving environmental and social standards, safeguards and policies for forest product production, forest carbon sequestration, and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+).
My personal interests lie within the field of Quaternary environmental research, particularly within tephrochronology, palaeoecology and their applications in reconstructing and dating past climate events in Europe and Asia.
Head of Catastrophe Risk Financing
Patrick develops quantitative methods for forecasting and risk analysis using statistical techniques to combine information from climate models, numerical weather prediction and historical observations. Applications include wind power generation, energy demand, catastrophe modelling and the economic impacts of climate change.
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.
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.
