Research Students


Ewelina Sienkiewicz

PhD student in CATS

She was awarded NERC Doctoral Training Grant and began her thesis in October 2012. Her provisional title is 'Internal Consistency as a Tool in Analysis and Application of Nonlinear Simulation'. Research interests include: model error in forecasting non-linear systems, predictability, statistical analysis of large computer models, model development and forecast evaluation, decision support using weather and climate models.

Ewelina graduated with a Master of Science degree in Computer Science and Econometrics from the University of Szczecin in Poland. She became a PhD research student in the Department of Statistics at LSE after working as an analyst in various sectors and companies including the Scottish Government and Ford of Europe.

Edward Wheatcroft

PhD student in CATS

He began his thesis in October 2010 as part of the NERC-funded RAPID-RAPIT project, a collaborative project led by the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton. He thesis title is 'Improving predictability of the future by grasping probability less tightly'. Ed will study the relationship between models and reality in the context of climate change. The research will work towards the design of ensemble experiments which can evaluate the spatial and temporal scales on which complex climate models can potentially provide quantitative information about the future real world climate.
