Research to Operations scientists

  • Mr Mike Bush

    Mike works to develop the Operational NAE Model

  • 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 high-resolution data assimilation with a specific focus on the potential for assimilation of ceilometer backscatter profiles. She works in the Data Assimilation @ Reading Group based at MetOffice@Reading Unit at the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading

  • Gareth Dow

    Gareth works with data assimilation development for the 4 km & 1.5 km hi-res UK models, aiming to improve forecasts of key weather elements such as rain, cloud, visibility, screen temperature and 10-metre wind

  • Breogan Gomez

    Breogán is improving land surface data assimilation at MetOffice.

  • Bruce Ingleby

    Bruce is a senior scientist working on data assimilation.

  • Dr Peter Jermey

    Peter works on regional reanalysis.

  • Dr Bruce Macpherson

    Bruce leads the development of operational convective-scale data assimilation systems in Numerical Weather Prediction models in the Met Office.

  • Dr Sana Mahmood

    Sana works on improving the analysis of middle atmosphere observations and the simulation of stratospheric dynamics by numerical models.

  • Dr Adam Martins

    Adam maintains and develops DAE systems code.

  • Adam Maycock

    Adam manages the DAE Systems Group, a team of five 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 data assimilation group at MetOffice.

  • Dr Larry Morgan

    Larry develops methods for exploiting conventional observations within the global NWP suite and monitors their use and assimilation.

  • Dr Aurore Porson

    Aurore works on the development of the UK ensemble forecasting model, MOGREPS-UK.

  • Rick Rawlins

    Rick leads the development and implementation of data assimilation upgrades for the 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 investigates causes of major poor forecasts with an emphasis on data assimilation.

Chris works to develop and test high-resolution regional models, particularly in the tropics.

  • Dr Warren Tennant

    Warren manages the Global Data Assimilation and Ensembles Group with a research interest in understanding and estimating model forecast error.

  • Dr Mike Thurlow

Mike works in global data assimilation with a special interest in operational NWP suites.

  • Dr Robert Tubbs

    Robert works on assimilating satellite radiance data and satellite-derived cloud information into convective-scale NWP models.

  • Dr David Walters

    David manages research to develop Global Atmosphere configurations of the Unified Model to be used seamlessly across all timescales.

  • Dr Mark Weeks

    Mark works to develop high resolution local area models.

  • Dr Clive Wilson

    Clive leads the team developing, testing and evaluating the Operational Regional and Limited Area forecast models.
