Research to operations scientists and scientific software engineers
Our research to operations scientists and scientific software engineers
David is Head of the Research to Operations (R2O) team in Weather Science.
- Dr Helen Buttery
Helen is currently researching the use of the forecast sensitivity to observations (FSO) technique in the UK 1.5-km model (UKV).
- Dr Cristina Charlton-Perez
Cristina works on land surface data assimilation with a specific focus on observations of soil moisture. She is part of the Coupled Data Assimilation team and is based at the MetOffice@Reading located in the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading.
Rhiannon works as a software developer in the Coupled Data Assimilation team.
Gareth works with data assimilation development for the 1.5 km hi-res UK model, aiming to improve forecasts of key weather elements such as rain, cloud, visibility, screen temperature and 10-metre wind
Stephen helps develop the software infrastructure used to run and evaluate regional NWP systems.
- Dr Breo Gomez
Breo works on improving the land representation in the Met Office modelling systems.
- Dr Chris Harris
Chris leads the Coupled Data Assimilation team in the Research to Operations (R2O) area of Weather Science.
- Dr Dingmin Li
Dingmin works on improving high-resolution data assimilation in the Convective-scale NWP group and is based at the MetOffice@Reading Unit in the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading.
Bruce leads the development of operational convective-scale data assimilation systems in Numerical Weather Prediction models in the Met Office.
- Dr Adam Martins
Adam maintains and develops DAE systems code.
- Adam Maycock
Adam manages the DAE Systems Group, a team of software engineers with responsibility for provision of Met Office Data Assimilation software for use in operational and research NWP suites. As well as development and provision of the current OPS, VAR and SURF systems, the group is currently planning for next generation DA systems, within the Met Office LFRic software infrastructure framework.
- Dr Marco Milan
Marco works in the Convective Scale NWP group at MetOffice.
- Dr Aurore Porson
Aurore works on convective-scale ensemble forecasting.
- Rick Rawlins
Rick manages a project to develop an atmosphere-ocean coupled model leading to implementation that will replace the current atmosphere-only Met Office operational global model.
- Dr Steven Sandbach
Steve is in the data assimilation and ensembles systems group working on Next Generation Data Assimilation software.
- Dr Adrian Semple
Adrian evaluates our operational and developmental forecast models and investigates the causes of poor forecasts.
- Dr Warren Tennant
Warren manages the Global Numerical Weather Prediction Group within the Research to Operations (R2O) area in Weather Science and has a keen research interest in predictability of the earth-system and ensemble forecasting methods.
Mike works in global numerical weather prediction with a special interest in its operational implementation.
- Dr Robert Tubbs
Robert works on the assimilation of observations into convective-scale NWP models, with a particular focus on satellite radiance observations.
- Dr Elliott Warren
Elliott works in the Global Numerical Weather Prediction group with the aim of improving the global weather forecasts.
