Department of Meteorology, University of Reading

I am joint head of department 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.
