Turning science into action

Bringing clarity to decision making for businesses, governments and growers

 

We’re using Earth Science AI to create practical insights and recommendations that will de-risk the way you work. 

We believe commercial needs and environmental conservation can and must be balanced. We support businesses and policy makers navigating system-level environmental risks and making long- and short-term decisions. 


Our work will improve the security of food supply, build resilience in economic systems, and maintain healthy ecosystems. It will inform wiser choices with science about where and when to invest, locate new infrastructure, or make investments into new products.

Food & Beverage

For food and beverage producers and growers we are working towards better in-season supply and logistics planning.

Cervest will help you with food supply security, supply chain security, sustainable product growth, effective in-season planning, insight for future scenarios.

 

Governments

We will help governments to plan for better natural capital management through informed decisions on national and regional land-use.

Cervest will help you by protecting populations from food shortages and associated humanitarian issues, and supporting infrastructure planning, and ensuring economic security for future generations.

 

Insurance

We will help Insurance and reinsurance companies with risk pricing by geography and risk category. 

Cervest will help you adapt for the future by helping accurately manage risk exposure, weight your asset portfolios and risk adjust premiums reflecting extreme and climatic risks.

Get access to our early product

Our dynamic data mapping product will cover all of Europe by Q1/2020. It is already being used by leading food and beverage companies to augment their decisions on supply volume, sourcing and related planning for ‘at-risk’ procurement orders, and we are continuing to add new datasets around crops and natural capital to help predict yield and bring clarity to procurement decisions. 

We are now opening up our platform to future-focused food producers, risk managers, food producers, investment managers, policy makers and strategists who are seeking to reduce the risks associated with climatic and extreme events and their effect on land-based processes and assets. 

 

 

 

Our future plans

 

As we develop our platform, we will expand our coverage to help other sectors, such as energy, infrastructure and natural resources.

Ernesta Baniulyte 
Product Designer

Ernesta has been a full-stack product designer for more than five years. She has valuable experience in the B2B, B2C and B2B2C worlds, and while working at both agencies and product/service companies, she has learned to develop UX research infrastructures to support strategy.

At Cervest, Ernesta contributes to all stages of the product development process – from initial ideation to the exacting detail of UI design – finding new ways to visualise data, and ensure our product is intuitive and user friendly.

Ernesta’s decision to join Cervest was inspired by her desire to make the world a safer, better and more aware place.

Ramani Lachyan 
Junior Research Scientist

Ramani joined Cervest after obtaining her Master’s in Physics from ETH, Zurich. She brings with her valuable experience gained through working on model building and data simulation pertaining to neutrino physics.

Ramani has joined Cervest as a Junior Research Scientist and will be working on creating algorithms that allow for the extraction of physical observables from data from a range of sources.

Lukas Scholtes 
Statistical Scientist

Lukas completed his maths BSc at ETH Zurich, followed by an MSc in statistics at Imperial College. He wrote his MSc thesis in collaboration with Cervest, on the modelling of North American wheat yields via Bayesian parametric and non-parametric methods.

Following an internship in the NGO sector in Bangladesh and a stint in the world of fintech, Lukas comes to Cervest, excited to apply himself to the challenges that are arising as a consequence of unsustainable land-use policies and climate change.

Aidan Coyne
Junior Researcher

Aidan is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Science and Engineering at University College London with a focus on computer science and data informatics.

At Cervest, Aidan is working on researching and assimilating a database of articles categorising the reasons for extreme decreases in crop yields across Europe. The information will be used to help predict the impact of weather events on crop yield and contribute to  Cervest’s ability to bring clarity to decision making around climatic and extreme events.

While studying, she also volunteers with environmental conservation groups and youth engagement programmes.

Jasmine Thompson
Engineering Resident

Jasmine’s background is primarily in Python programming with a focus on data analysis and visualisation.

Since graduating, she has worked on data insights for a London-based dating app startup, helping the company understand the user base and guide new growth. She is now excited to use her skills to help Cervest deliver playback data and useful data analysis and is passionate about the potential of data science, machine learning and visualisation tools.

While studying at Westcliff High School for Girls she was involved in a variety of projects including GUI design for BAE Systems and data collection for a surveillance vehicle project sponsored by Leonardo S.p.A. She was also the Data Analyst for a long-running Southend Youth Council project that advocated for students having better mental health services in school.
