Imogen models the transport of material using the Met Office's Numerical Atmospheric-dispersion Modelling Environment (NAME).
Imogen's areas of expertise include:
Imogen is currently using NAME to investigate whether CH4 detected by monitoring stations in Canada is a product of the natural freeze-thaw cycles of the numerous lakes in the area.
Imogen has worked in the Atmospheric Dispersion Group since joining the Met Office in 2009, and has used NAME for a variety of applications, including the dispersion of SO2 and the formation of sulphate aerosol from volcanic eruptions.
Prior to joining the Met Office, Imogen completed a PhD in early universe cosmology at the University of Portsmouth. Imogen also has an MSc in Astronomy from the University of Sussex and a BSc in Mathematical Physics from the University of Liverpool.
