Dr Emily O'Riordan
Emily is a postdoctoral researcher at Bodeker Scientific, based in Wellington. She has recently completed her PhD at Cardiff University in the UK, studying the mathematics of data science methods, so has a background working with neural networks and their applications across many fields.
Emily is working on the DeepWeather project here at Bodeker Scientific, which aims to train a neural network to generate weather forecasts at an extremely small scale, a task that is currently prohibitively expensive to perform. If successful, this project will be implemented into MetService’s weather prediction.
