Post-Doctoral Research Associate, climateprediction.net
Dr Sihan Li (Meredith) is working on the The Nature Conservancy (TNC) project, using weather@home simulations to investigate the impacts of recent extreme weather events on the Amazonian biosphere. She is investigating what role climate change played in the likelihood of those extreme weather events, as well as how the change in biosphere would affect the local climate.
She is jointly appointed between the Oxford e-Research Centre and the University's Environmental Change Institute.
Prior to joining ECI, Meredith completed her PhD at Oregon State University in the United States, where she worked on the weather@home project in the western US region, looking at drivers of extreme drought events in the US, future regional climate change projections over the western US, as well as investigating uncertainties due to internal variability and physical parameter perturbations.
