Cameron Rye

Postdoctoral Researcher

Cameron is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford working on the project, which harnesses computing power donated by the general public to produce large (multi-thousand member) ensembles of general circulation models (GCMs). Cameron is currently working on a new a new international project called, which aims to produce large ensembles of regional climate models (RCMs) to explore the response of extreme weather events to climate warming. A key goal of is to undertake simulations of ‘the world that would have been’ without anthropogenic forcing. This will allow scientists to attribute the human contribution to certain events, such as flooding, droughts and heatwaves.
