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.
I serve 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.
