We welcome applications for a 8-week summer placement project in the Business School, titled “Downscaling physical risks from global climate models”, with Imperial’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (see here for our other project).
This UROPs is offered on a remote or hybrid basis. On-campus attendance will be possible, but it will not be essential.
*Applications are especially welcomed by Black students, as well as from individuals who are members of current and historically underrepresented groups*
Please check the Imperial College London UROP pages for general information and eligibility
A bursary is available, of £319/week to the successful applicant.
Project title: Downscaling physical risks from global climate models
The project aims to assist a team of researchers in the projection of physical risks along different climate pathways with application to forests. Projection of physical risks at high spatial resolutions will allow us to understand the evolution of carbon sequestration potential and vulnerability to different risks including wildfires. The project is of relevance to students interested in climate risk analytics (physical risk projections and model uncertainty), carbon-based assets (such as forestry-linked securities) and the integrated modelling of various risks (e.g., wildfire risk and carbon emissions).
Skills and experience required: Python, statistics, machine learning
