Extreme value statistics: a tool-kit for environmental hazards
This month we are joined by Claudia Neves, Senior Lecturer in Statistics in the Department of Mathematics at King's College London, who will be presenting on extreme value statistics which is essentially concerned with the modelling of rare events which are hard to predict and occur with only little warning.
Claudia Neves joined the Department of Mathematics at King’s College London in Statistics in 2021, where she is a Senior Lecturer in Statistics since 2023. Prior to this, she was a Lecturer in Theoretical Probability and Statistics at the University of Reading during which time she held an EPSRC Innovation Fellowship for the project "Multivariate Max-stable Processes with Application to the Forecasting of Multiple Hazards". Her primary field of expertise is in extreme value theory for modelling extreme and rare events. Her research centres around the development of statistical methodology to help solve challenging problems in several fields of applied sciences, ranging from meteorology and the environment to insurance and finance.

The Net Zero Interdisciplinary Seminar Series is the flagship seminar series for King’s College London’s Net Zero Centre, providing a platform for cross-pollination between academia, industry and government to develop novel research projects to achieve Net Zero.
Every month, we host a speaker to discuss a new research idea and seek contributions from audience members on a proposed challenge. A half-hour talk is followed by a discussion, and we encourage speakers to engage with colleagues on research related to our four priority areas, decarbonisation, sustainable manufacturing, equitable resource allocation and resilient infrastructure.
The Net Zero Centre at King's is dedicated to addressing the challenges of decarbonising our society and reducing the environmental impact of our manufacturing, infrastructure, and cities. It serves as hub for scientific, technological and engineering research geared towards this challenge.
Based in the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical and Engineering Sciences (NMES), the Centre works across the boundaries of disciplines at King’s from geography and business to law and social science to deliver solutions for sustainable development. The Centre fosters the next generation of King’s change-makers by educating scientists and engineers on the holistic context of these challenges and developing technologically aware social scientists, lawyers, and policy makers.
