Peter develops the radiation parametrization at the Met Office.
Areas of expertise:
Atmospheric radiative transfer.
Climate and weather modelling.
Peter contributes to the development of the radiative transfer scheme used to calculate the distribution of atmospheric radiative energy in the Unified Model.
Currently Peter's work is focused on improving the representation of clouds in the radiative transfer scheme. In particular, he is working on better representing the radiative effects of subgrid scale cloud variability. This work forms part of the PhD Peter started in 2009, which is co-supervised by James Manners at the Met Office and Dr Robin Hogan at the University of Reading.
Peter joined the cloud and radiation team at the Met Office in 2007. He graduated with an MSci in Mathematics from the University of Bristol in the same year.
