Maria's areas of expertise include:
Maria is a research scientist working on inversion methods, using the Met Office NAME-Inversion method. Main areas of research include collaborative work with UK and European partners to investigate methane and nitrous oxide inventories and uncertainties on a European scale.
After her PhD on mesoscale flows over orography from Reading University, Maria held two post-doctoral positions. The first was with the Meteorology Department at Reading University from 1995 to 1996, working on the European project ANOMALIA investigating severe precipitation events in the Western Mediterranean. The second, from 1996 to 1998, was with ENFLO at Surrey University, working on wind tunnel measurements of flow over rough hills.
Maria joined the Met Office in 1998 as a research scientist in orographic flows, working in Atmospheric Processes and Parametrizations. In 2004 she joined the Atmospheric Dispersion Group where she is currently based.
