Current activities

Matthew's team maintain and develop the Climate Data Dissemination System (CDDS) that converts UKESM1 and HadGEM3 model output into the standards compliant form required for activities such as the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 6 (CMIP6). This data can then be published to the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) via our partners at the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) allowing scientists around the world to analyse and exploit our climate simulations and contribute to activities, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports. Matthew is the representative for the Met Office on the Working Group on Coupled Modelling (WGCM) Infrastructure Panel, a group that coordinates the infrastructure behind CMIP6, and has co-chaired this group since 2020.

Career background

Matthew joined the Met Office Hadley Centre in 2009 working in the High Resolution Global Climate Modelling group, collaborating with the University of Reading through the High Resolution Climate Modelling programme. While in this role he coordinated the implementation of the UPSCALE project and initially lead the data management work package within the EU Horizon2020 project PRIMAVERA. Matthew moved to his current role in 2016.

Prior to joining the Met Office Matthew has previously worked for BT Exact Technologies, modelling data and telephone networks, and from 2003 to 2009 investigated the interaction between atoms and metal surfaces at the University of Bath under the supervision of Prof. David Bird, gaining a PhD in 2007.
