Myles Allen is Professor of Geosystem Science in the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford and Head of the Climate Dynamics Group in the University's Department of Physics. His research focuses on how human and natural influences on climate contribute to observed climate change and risks of extreme weather and in quantifying their implications for long-range climate forecasts.

Myles has served on the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as Lead Author on 'Detection of Climate Change and Attribution of Causes' for the 3rd Assessment in 2001, as Review Editor on 'Global Climate Projections' for the 4th Assessment in 2007, and as Lead Author on 'Detection and Attribution of Climate Change: from Global to Regional' for the 5th Assessment in 2013.

He proposed the use of Probabilistic Event Attribution to quantify the contribution of human and other external influences on climate to specific individual weather events and leads the www.climateprediction.net project, using distributed computing to run the world’s largest ensemble climate modelling experiments.

Brought to you by the University of Auckland Public Policy Institute and the Tai Tokerau campus.
