I am a Professor in the School
of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia. Prior
to starting at UEA in 2004 I spent 6 years as a research scientist
at the British Antarctic Survey, following on from a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto and my PhD at the University of Reading.
My research is in dynamical and physical processes within the coupled
climate system; in particular mesoscale dynamical meteorology and
boundary-layer meteorology. I am interested in real weather systems:
what they look like, how they work physically and how we can describe
them mathematically. Hopefully such work will lead to a better understanding
of the climate system and improvements in forecasting and modelling
the atmosphere and ocean.
