Dr Miguel Rico-Ramirez

Biography

I've received the MEng. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Guanajuato (Mexico) and the PhD. degree from the University of Bristol. My main research interests are the application of digital signal processing techniques to remote sensing, in particular to weather radar systems, the uncertainty in the measurement of precipitation using weather radar, the development of polarimetric weather radar to improve data quality, the estimation of precipitation for hydrological and meteorological purposes and quantitative precipitation forecasting using radar and Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models. The Water Research Group within the Department of Civil Engineering provides a focus to study water management issues both in the UK and overseas from a systems point of view. Key expertise within the centre exists in: radar hydrology, real-time flood forecasting, hydrological modelling, numerical weather prediction modelling, hydroinformatics, flood risk management and other aspects of risk and uncertainty.
