Eleanor Fapohunda Colloquium Series

Dr. Douglas Johnston, "Measuring Climate Risk."

In this talk, Dr. Johnston will introduce the audience to the statistical analysis of extreme events and its application to climate risk assessment. Extreme climate events, such as extreme precipitation, have important implications in many fields including civil engineering where public infrastructure design and human health are important considerations.  Dr. Johnston will discuss the science behind extreme value analysis and present his recent research applying a Bayesian framework to the problem. 

The School of Arts & Sciences Colloquium Series was established in 2004 by the late Dr. Eleanor Fapohunda, Dean of the School of Arts & Sciences, to enable our faculty to share their scholarly pursuits with their colleagues by giving presentations that are accessible, engaging, and interesting to faculty, staff, and students representing the wide range of academic backgrounds of our School.
