Hannah Christensen

NERC Independent Research Fellow, Atmospheric Oceanic and Planetary Physics, University of Oxford

I am interested in representing uncertainty in weather and climate predictions. This allows us to make reliable probabilistic forecasts of the future state of the atmosphere, which are invaluable for decision making.

I have written articles on probabilistic forecasting for the general public, including for the Guardian website and Significance magazine.
