Joe works on maintaining and improving the Unified Model code.
Joe is a member of the Unified Model System Team whose work includes improving and maintaining the Unified Model code. An important part of this work is reviewing additions to the Unified Model by other developers to ensure they meet the required technical standards. Joe also looks after part of the Unified Model code known as the reconfiguration. This code is used to modify atmospheric data files in order to allow a model run to provide initial data for a secondary model run with a different domain and/or resolution.
Joe has been a member of the Unified Model System Team since starting at the Met Office in 2012. Prior to joining the Met Office he did a PhD in High Energy Nuclear Physics at the University of Glasgow where his work focused on data analysis of experiments run using the Mainz Microtron at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz (Germany).
