Erica Thompson

Erica has worked on the Munich Re Programme at the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy. Her research interests focus on how to identify meaningful and useful projections of future climate, how different types of model output can be used to inform these projections, and how to think about uncertainty. She looked at some of these questions in the context of North Atlantic storms for her PhD at Imperial College.
