Lecturer in Optimal Ecological Management

Kate Saunders is a lecturer in the School of Mathematical Sciences whose research interests are in statistical climatology. Her primary focus is on modelling climate extremes; and understanding how the probability of extreme events might be influenced by climate change. Other interests include; statistical post-processing of meteorological forecasts, quality control of meteorological data and how to estimate the risk posed by compound weather events. Kate’s research improves our understanding of the probability of extreme climate/weather events and helps us to make informed decisions about natural disaster risk.
