Graeme contributes to weather and climate research specific to the aviation community.
Graeme's main area of work is on research in the area of meteorological impacts on aviation. His current work includes assessing the quality of lightning location data obtained from instruments on the latest generation of geostationary meteorological satellites, and assessing new techniques for using ensemble model data to give probabilistic forecasts of convection for aviation applications.
Graeme joined the Met Office in 2011 and completed the forecaster training course in the Met Office College, before switching into Observations Research and Development in early 2012. During that time, Graeme worked on the Met Office lightning locating network (ATDnet), on radiosondes (the instruments that are attached to weather balloons that are vital to observations of the atmosphere) and on the application of data from global navigation satellite systems (GNSSs) such as GPS for meteorological observations. Graeme moved to the Aviation Applications team in 2018.
Prior to joining the Met Office, he completed an MSc in Applied Meteorology at the University of Reading, and a BSc in Physics at the University of Edinburgh.
