Matthew is a research scientist working on developing and analysing higher resolution versions of Met Office global coupled climate models across space and time scales.
Matthew's areas of expertise include software development utilising the MONSooN shared supercomputer between the Met Office and NERC.
Matthew's work aims to develop, execute and analyse high-resolution, coupled-climate and ocean models, looking at the benefits gained (and costs incurred) compared to current medium- and low-resolution configurations. In particular, he is interested in understanding how the key processes and feedbacks in climate simulations depend on the resolution of the models used.
Matthew joined the Met Office Hadley Centre in 2009 and moved to the High Res Modelling group in 2010. He has previously worked for BT modelling data and telephone networks, and from 2003 to 2009 investigated the interaction between atoms and metal surfaces at the University of Bath under the supervision of Prof. David Bird, gaining a PhD in 2007.
