Professor Catherine E. Powell



I am a Professor in Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Manchester (previously UMIST) and a member of the Department's Numerical Analysis and Uncertainty Quantification groups. I am currently acting as Group Research Lead for Applied Mathematics.


I am an associate editor for the SIAM/ASA journal on Uncertainty Quantification and the SIAM journal on Numerical Analysis. I am also currently the Program Director for the SIAM Activity Group on UQ.

I was co-chair of the organising committee for the CANCELLED 2020 SIAM conference on UQ (UQ20), and was recently involved in running the UKRI-funded Network From Models to Decisions (M2D) .


I am involved in the EPSRC-funded project: Numerical analysis of adaptive UQ algorithms for PDEs with random inputs.
