matematik, klimatologi, forskarskolanKlimat & mobilitet
My research regards enviromental change due to human intervention or more
precise extreme value theory in climate and mobility. Extrem value theory
is the probalilistic and statistical theory that is used to analyze rare
events. It is cloesly linked to risk theory, and has been developed for 50
years in interaction with applications in, e.g. climatology, hydrology,
material sciences, mathematical finance and metrology. Much existing
statistical methodology for extremes is univariate, while many
contemporary real world applications, e.g., the study of climate changes,
require advanced mulitvariate methodology, for data materials with strong
interdependencies and not necessarily equal distributions. The purpose of
the project is to use recent advances in extreme value theory to develop
statistical methodology for extremes, that better respondes to needs in
contemporary applications, with a focus on analyzis of climate changes,
but also with a view towards the other areas mentioned above. A second
purpose is to deveop new extreme value theory for mathematical statistical
models, often involving stochastic processes, that are needed in
climatology.
