I am a Senior Research Fellow of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) and a co-leader of the Predictability of Weather and Climate group. My main research interests are model-based weather and climate forecasts and the uncertainties associated with them.
Areas of interest:
- Predictability and reliability of weather and climate on time scales of days, weeks, months, seasons and years
- Assessing model uncertainty in weather and climate forecasts
- Seamless prediction of weather and climate
- Multi-decadal variability in the climate system and its predictability
I hold a joint position as a senior scientist in the Research Department of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) in Reading where I work on seasonal forecasts.
Since 2014 I have been serving as an Associate Editor of the Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society.
Physics Thrive is an informal mentoring network at Oxford Physics to discuss wellbeing, career progression, ED&I issues with anyone in the Department. I am a mentor in Physics Thrive and am happy to take time and listen to people’s questions, worries and concerns. I can offer to discuss their situation together and give a personal woman-in-science perspective on non-standard career paths, work-life balance and related aspects.
