Robert is developing datasets in order to study climate extremes.
Areas of expertise:
Data quality control and processing pipelines.
Sub daily datasets.
Robert will be improving the quality control software used in sub-daily data analysis. This will allow the subsequent study of the extremes in the weather occurring on these short timescales, and how these have changed over time.
Robert joined the Met Office in 2010. Before that he worked as a post-doc at the Excellence Cluster "Universe" in Munich studying the behaviour of solar-mass black-holes over time from their X-ray emission. He received his PhD from the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge, which followed on from an MSci in Natural Sciences (Physics) from Cambridge University.
