I am a Professor in the Department of Physics, and Fellow and Tutor in Physics at Trinity College, University of Oxford, UK. In the Department I currently lead the Geophysical and Planetary Fluid Dynamics group, in which we investigate the fundamental dynamics underpinning the circulations of planetary atmospheres and oceans.
Until April 2019 I was also the Joint Chair of the Oxford-Met Office Academic Partnership, which was launched formally in October 2013. In this role I worked with various colleagues across the whole of the University to promote stronger links and collaboration between Oxford researchers and the Met Office and its other academic partners. In practice, this is mainly focused on various aspects of climate science and its applications. The current Joint Chair is Tim Woollings - see http://www.climate.ox.ac.uk/oxford-climate-research/met-office-academic-...(link is external) for more details.
