Jethro Browell visit to the University of Bristol

The School of Mathematics was pleased to welcome Dr Jethro Browell, Research Fellow at the University of Strathclyde. His part of the Data Science Seminar Series, giving a talk on the topic of ‘Challenging predictions in energy forecasting.’ The series is a collaboration between with the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research and the Jean Golding Institute.

Dr Browell was also involved in running a regional electricity demand forecasting hackathon for students in the COMPASS Centre for Doctoral Training. He gave students an overview of how the Great Britain electricity transmission network has changed during the last decade.

Dr Browell noted: “Computational statistics and data science is driving innovation in the energy sector and the technologies they enable will play a huge role in the decarbonisation. I was pleased to be able to expose the COMPASS cohort to this application and hope that they will be inspired to apply their expertise to energy and climate problems in the future.”
