I am an NCAS research scientist working at the University of Reading working on the IMPALA project with Steve Woolnough and Alison Stirling (Met Office).
Previously I worked on the volcanic ash strand of the Robust Assessment and Communication of Environmental Risk (RACER) project with Helen Dacre. This project aims to build a framework to assess uncertainty in the prediction of natural hazards. This includes flooding, tsnuamis, earthquakes, extreme weather forecasts and the long range dispersion of volcanic ash.
I took my PhD titled "Boundary-layer type classification and pollutant mixing" at the University of Reading. I was supervised by Robin Hogan and Helen Dacre. More information about my PhD can be found here. The boundary layer typing algorithm I developed as part of my PhD can be downloaded here.

NEWSI gave an update on my work on the IMPALA project at the IMPALA science meeting (19-20 January at University of Leeds). The slides can be found here: Development of tools to analyse the TKE budget of an idealised diurnal cycle
Our paper "Emulation of a volcanic ash transport and dispersion model to quantify sensitivity to uncertain parameters" has been submitted to NHESS and is available online as a discussion paper.
