Dr Xinjia Hu

Subject: Physics

Academic position: Calleva Research Associate



I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Calleva Research Centre at Magdalen College. I studied Atmospheric Sciences during my undergraduate and worked on Natural Hazard during master period. I obtained my PhD degree in Physics in Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems. During the PhD period, I was an early stage researcher (ESR) involved in the Marie Curie ITN project “Climate Advanced Forecasting of sub-seasonal Extremes” (CAFE).

My research interest is multidisciplinary based on climate science. I work on the topic of extreme weather events and its social impact (mainly economic loss). I did a lot of work during my master and PhD period linking the large-scale climate modes with the weather anomalies, aiming to provide the useful prediction information for stake holders to manage the natural hazard risk. My current research topic focuses on the impact of climate change,  extreme weather events and tipping points.
