Dr. Javier Amezcua

I am a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Data Assimilation Research Group (DARC) at the University of Reading. This group is a collaboration of the Department of Meteorology and the Department of Mathematics. My current work is on nonlinear data assimilation. Under the supervision of Prof. Peter Jan van Leeuwen, I am implementating a particle filter with 'almost-equal weigths' using an ensemble of 4D-Vars.
