Eadaoin attained a BSc in Climate and Earth System Science from UCD, followed by a MSc in Applied Meteorology from Reading University in the UK. Eadaoin then worked in the commercial sector in London for three years where her main role involved the development of a customer orientated flood forecasting system tailored specifically to the needs of operational claims teams within insurance companies. Eadaoin’s current research will contribute to MD3 weather as an energy systems driver. Her aim is to develop a model that will reduce the uncertainty in energy system forecasting through statistical post-processing which will predict the supply and demand response of the energy system to atmospheric changes such as heat waves, cold spells, blocking highs and storms, with a prediction period from hours to days ahead.
