My research concerns radiative transfer, clouds and remote sensing with radar and lidar. Since April 2014 my primary affiliation is ECMWF, where I have responsibility for the radiation scheme. My past and present University of Reading activities are described on the Clouds Group web page, and I co-supervise three PhD students with Christine Chiu. I have close research links with colleages in the Radar Group and the Radiation Group.
