I’m a Research Scientist based at the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading. I use observational data and high-resolution global climate models to study tropical and midlatitude storms, including their tracks, structures, variability, and role in extreme rainfall events. I'm particularly interested in what we can learn from global climate models in regions where limited observational data are available. I contribute to running the biannual NCAS Climate Modelling Summer School. I’m funded by the ACSIS and PRIMAVERA projects, and also work with the oil and gas industry to improve assessments of tropical-cyclone risk to offshore infrastructure.
