Ross ToweKTP Associate, PhD student
Extreme value theory, Dynamical and Statistical downscaling, Climate modelling and Forecasting
I completed my undergraduate degree in Financial Mathematics at Lancaster University. During the summer after graduating from my bachelors, I completed a summer internship in the market risk management department of TMB bank. I found this a highly rewarding experience as I saw first-hand how statistics was used in a number of different applications. I then completed a Masters in Statistics, again at Lancaster University.I started my PhD in January 2011 with my research focused on the dynamical and statistical downscaling approaches of analysing the future wave climate of the North Sea. The project is a collaborative project between Lancaster University and Shell. My academic supervisors are Emma Eastoe and Jonathan Tawn and my industrial supervisors from Shell are Nicolas Fournier and Philip Jonathan.
