PSD Researcher Featured on Web Site Showcasing Mathematical Achievements by Women
June 6, 2011
Cécile Penland, of the Physical Sciences Division (PSD), is a featured researcher in "Six Questions With...", a series of interviews celebrating mathematical achievements by women on the Isaac Newton Institute (INI) for Mathematical Sciences web site. Located in Cambridge, UK, INI is an international visitor research institute that runs research programs on selected themes in the mathematical sciences. In fall 2011, INI hosted the Mathematical and Statistical Approaches to Climate Modelling and Prediction program. Penland was a visitor to that program October–December 2010 while a Visiting Fellow at Churchill College, a constituent college of the University of Cambridge.
Penland became a researcher with the University of Colorado's Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) in 1989, and was later hired as a Physical Scientist for NOAA in 1999. She currently works in PSD on forecasting and diagnosis of El Niño dynamics, as well as the development of stochastic methods for diagnosing and forecasting multiscale climate processes.
