New ERIE PhD student working with Skeldon & Roulstone

Michelle Grant started as PhD student at Surrey in January 2013. Her project will focus on data assimilation in systems with multiple scales under the supervision of Anne Skeldon and Ian Roulstone.

Michelle graduated with a mathematics degree from Edinburgh University in 2000 and moved into the financial sector, predominantly employed in Corporate Treasury roles.  This has encompassed interest rate risk management, own-asset securitisation, and a considerable amount of risk modelling at RBS Group Treasury, Lloyds Corporate Markets and Santander Global Banking and Markets.

Her PhD project is linked to the inter-departmental Evolution and Resilience of Industrial Ecosystems (ERIE) project, and Michelle is based with the ERIE team, where she hopes to be able to apply data assimilation methods to some of the case study models being developed within the ERIE project
