Professor Lesley Gray has been elected President of the Royal Meteorological Society. Currently vice-president, she will take up the presidency for two years from October 2022 and, as is customary, assume the role of vice-president again for a further year after that. Professor Gray is a member of the Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics sub-department at Oxford's Department of Physics.
The Royal Meteorological Society is the learned and professional society for weather and climate; the president acts as a figurehead for the society and presides over all activity and developments.
‘I am delighted to assume the role of president next year,’ comments Professor Gray. ‘It has been an honour to serve as vice-president and I very much look forward to continuing the society’s excellent and essential work at this critical time in history.’
