Simon works on long-range forecasting applications development.
Simon's activities focus on developing science for user-relevant predictions. His current work includes an analysis of predictability of UK seasonal precipitation - using output from the high-resolution seasonal prediction system Met Office seasonal prediction system: GloSea5, and the potential for applications to hydrological predictions. He is also investigating observed correlations in UK regional temperature and precipitation.
Simon joined the Met Office Hadley Centre in October 2012 after graduating with a BSc in Mathematics from Nottingham Trent University.
