Rosemary works on monthly to decadal climate prediction with a particular emphasis on predictability and modes of variability.
Areas of expertise
Decadal climate prediction and variability
Modes of variability
Assessment of predictability and forecast skill
Rosemary's work involves investigation into the predictability of climate variables on monthly to decadal time scales, and assessment of the forecast skill of decadal prediction systems, primarily using ensemble predictions from the Met Office Decadal Prediction System (DePreSys).
The current focus is on the decadal variability of the North Atlantic Oscillation and associated global teleconnections. The aim of this work is to improve understanding of the variability, and to increase prediction capability.
Rosemary joined the Met Office Hadley Centre in 2008 as a member of the Monthly to Decadal Prediction group. Prior to that, Rosemary did the Atmospheric Science MSc at the University of East Anglia, following on from a BSc in Mathematics from Cambridge University, and worked briefly as a research assistant for the British Antarctic Survey.
