Clare also works on setting up, running, and analysing ocean models for commercial customers, especially oil and gas customers.
Before joining the Met Office in 2012, Clare was a coastal modeller at the National Oceanography Centre (formerly Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory). She was responsible for a pre-operational modelling system for the Irish Sea, which comprised a nested suite of ocean-ecosystem models and a website that displayed results to users.
Clare completed her PhD in ocean modelling, at Plymouth University, in 2008. She set up a POLCOMS model of the Rockall Bank region and used this to investigate formation and cascading of dense water.
Clare has a BSc in Oceanography with Maths from the University of Southampton.
