Dr Ana Lopez
Research Officer in CATS.
She has expertise in probabilistic climate change projections and their use in the quantification of future impacts and adaptation to climate change. Her previous experience includes research in theoretical physics in different universities in USA, Argentina and UK, and more recently as a Tyndall Research Fellow at Oxford University, where she explored different approaches to identify the difficulties and potentialities of using large ensembles of climate models to project impacts of climate change, quantify their uncertainty, and extract robust and relevant information to develop adaptation pathways in different systems, with a focus on water resource management and biodiversity. Her research interests include climate model validation and evaluation, predictability measures and limits to predictability, temporal and spatial limits for impacts relevant climate model information, vulnerability approaches to mitigation and adaptation to climate change, and the intersection between climate science and decision making under deep uncertainty.
