Personal profile

Vision Statement

I am a climate scientist with an interest in understanding the influence of climate variability and anthropogenic climate change on rainfall at the regional scale. The response of the hydrological cycle to a warmer world is not uniform and the impact on the magnitude of rainfall and the frequency of extreme events has substantial regional variability. I have a particular expertise in statistical post-processing and downscaling techniques for climate model output, specifically for climate extremes. Such techniques provide an important basis for providing reliable climate information at spatial scales that are relevant to stakeholders. 

Biography

With an academic background in applied meteorology and climatology, Jonathan Eden completed his PhD in climate science at the University of Birmingham. His PhD research involved the development of a statistical correction for precipitation simulated by global climate models with the aim of producing better estimates for future rainfall changes at small spatial scales. 

Seeking a new challenge and with a desire to work abroad, Jonathan joined the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) as a postdoctoral researcher in 2014. Within the Weather and Climate Model Research and Development department, he worked primarily on the EU-funded projects SPECS and EUCLEIA in the fields of seasonal-to-decadal forecasting and the extreme event attribution respectively, working alongside multiple partners at other leading meteorological research institutes.

Jonathan returned to the UK to join CAWR as a Research Fellow in June 2017.
