Dr Gabriel Rooney

Gabriel works on aspects of convection in the atmosphere.

Current activities

Gabriel works on convection and buoyancy-driven flow. This includes atmospheric convection, as well as convective-type flow from other sources e.g. volcanic plumes.

He is also co-supervising a PhD on the exploitation of high-frequency meteorological observations from aircraft.

He has recently worked on the representation of lakes in the Met Office Unified Model via the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator.

Career background

Gabriel has been a member of Parametrizations since 2006 and prior to that spent several years working in Observations Based Research at the Met Office Research Unit at Cardington. He obtained his PhD on plume-flow modelling from DAMTP, University of Cambridge, following a maths degree from the Queen's University of Belfast.
