Senior Research Fellow (NCAS Climate)

Group: http://ncas-climate.nerc.ac.uk

My research: http://www.met.rdg.ac.uk/~ss901165

Research Interests:

  • Organised tropical convection, with a focus on the Madden-Julian oscillation
  • Air-sea interactions and their role in sub-seasonal predictability
  • Regional climate variability and change, particularly in Australia
  • Improving the ability of weather and climate models to simulate the above

Research Projects:

  • Vertical structure and diabatic processes of the Madden-Julian oscillation: An international model-evaluation project on the ability of weather and climate models to simulate key diabatic heating and moistening processes associated with organised tropical convection.
  • Future Weather: Examining how air-sea coupling affects projections of changes in regional weather and climate extremes.
  • NCAS Core-funded activities: Improving the ability of the U.K. Met Office model to simulate organised tropical convection, such as the MJO and monsoon sub-seasonal variability.

Postdoctoral & graduate student supervision

  • Linda Hirons working on the Future Weather project (see above).
