Department of Meteorology, University of Reading

I am a professor at the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading. My research interests largely concern physics-dynamics interactions: i.e., model parameterizations and their influences on dynamics. Of particular interest is atmospheric convection, ranging from idealized process studies to its representation in numerical models, to its role in synoptic-scale systems.

Other interests include the role of the boundary layer in synoptic systems as well as the use of ensembles and predictability.

There are currently adverts out for two potential PhD projects working with me on multi-scale parameterization for the convection grey zone (video)and representing land-atmosphere coupling over mountainous terrain (video). The closing date is 12 January 2024.

The covers above are for a 2015 two-volume book on convection parameterization. Some more details are in this flyer, and the cover art itself is courtesy of Graeme Stephens.
