Dr Friederike (Fredi) Otto is Acting Director of Oxford's Environmental Change Institute and an Associate Professor in the Global Climate Science Programme. Her research focuses on extreme weather events, improving and developing methodologies to answer the question 'whether and to what extent external climate drivers alter the likelihood of extreme weather'. Furthermore, she explores the implication of policy within this emerging scientific field.
Dr Otto joined the ECI in 2011 to work on ensemble-based quantification of uncertainty in climate impact projections and continues to work on the quantification of uncertainty and validation of climate mode.
Dr Otto is co-investigator on the international project World Weather Attribution which aims to provide an assessment of the human-influence on extreme weather in real time and in the immediate aftermath of the event occurring.
