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
Richard works to investigate the value of increasing the resolution of numerical weather prediction models for regional forecasts.
- Breogan Gomez
Breogán is improving land surface data assimilation at MetOffice.
- Dr Susanna Hagelin
Susanna works on the development of the UK ensemble forecasting model, MOGREPS-UK.
- 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.
