Dr. Neven Fučkar
Dr Neven Fučkar is a climate scientist who focuses on statistics, dynamics, prediction, attribution and impacts of extreme events in a changing climate, and utilises a wide spectrum of observations, reanalysis products, impact models, initialized predictions, and CMIP5/6 and weather/OpenIFS@home simulations.
Neven completed his PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at Princeton University, USA, where he investigated large-scale ocean dynamics, hierarchy of models at different levels of complexity and the ocean's role in climate at NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. Furthermore, Neven's research interests encompass hydrological cycle, polar processes, interaction between the climate system and the human system affecting health, food production, water resources and markets, climate-related risk assessment, resilience strengthening and adaptation, and numerical, statistical and machine learning methods.
