Dr Dmitry Yumashev

Dmitry has a background in Applied Mathematics, Theoretical Physics and Mathematical Modelling. He has done research in various applied areas such as Fluid Mechanics, Aeroacoustics, Financial Mathematics and Emergency Management for some time, gaining versatile experience both in Russia and in the UK.


Biography:

Since 2010 he has worked at the University of Manchester, both as a researcher (projects on Revenue Management of Airport Carparks, and Economics of Nuclear Accidents) and a part-time lecturer in Actuarial Financial Mathematics. His modelling tool-kit includes applied probability, statistics (data analysis, forecasting), real options analysis and optimal control theory (real-time decision making under uncertainty), as well economic models for quantifying risk. Dmitry also has good experience of working as part of multi-disciplinary teams, including academic and industry partners and regulators, and is familiar with policy-making issues. His main interests are in inter-disciplinary areas with societal applications.
He works with Prof Gail Whiteman and her team at the Rotterdam School of Management on economic modelling of the effects of climate change, as part of the EU-funded ICE-ARC project which involves a number of collaborators from the University of Cambridge (including 4CMR). The focus is on the Arctic region where the changes are most pronounced and could lead to profound effects on the global climate system and economy. With their Research and Development activities, the team aims to update the so-called PAGE09 model. This is an integrated assessment model developed in Cambridge which is being used by a number of governments and independent reviewers for estimating long-term climate-related costs of the human economic activity.

A key area of research at 4CMR over the past 5 years has been the development of the Future Technology Transformation model, used in exploring how policies influence global technology and carbon. This includes an on-line visualisation tool so you can view our results.

4CMR works closely with the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance, with overlapping interests, skills and projects. C-EENRG is also located in the Department of Land Economy, with a core mission to "conduct integrative research on the governance of environmental transitions, understood as social and technological processes driven by environmental constraints that lead to fundamental changes in social organisation."
