I am a lecturer in weather systems at the Department of Meteorology. My work is focused on understanding the dynamical processes responsible for climate variability, especially in the North Alantic / European sector, and how these processes may be affected by climate change.
I have recently written a review on the dynamical processes which shape European climate and how the response of these processes to climate change is particularly uncertain. The paper is available here - all comments most welcome of course!
Also in response to media interest in recent severe weather events and whether these may be related to climate change I have written a short general audience article in the winter 2010 issue of NERC's Planet Earth magazine. PDF
I act as the Reading co-ordinator of the Reading-Oklahoma undergraduate exchange programme and the associated Reading MMet in Meteorology and Climate with a year in Oklahoma.
Please note that I have a flexible work pattern: I work at home two days a week during term time (generally Wednesdays and Fridays). I am (sadly!) almost always contactable by email (see bottom of page).
