Professor Catherine E. Powell



I am a Professor in Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics in the School of Natural Sciences at the University of Manchester (previously UMIST). I conduct research at the interface of numerical analysis and uncertainty quantification (UQ) and am a member of the Department's Numerical Analysis and UQ research groups. I am currently acting as Group Research Lead for Applied Mathematics and am a member of the Department's research committee.


I am an associate editor for the SIAM/ASA journal on Uncertainty Quantification and the SIAM journal on Numerical Analysis.

I am currently involved in the EPSRC-funded project Multilevel Intrusive UQ Methods and was recently involved in the EPSRC-funded project Numerical analysis of adaptive UQ algorithms for PDEs with random inputs.
