I study the atmospheric phenomena which drive rainfall variability, based at the National Centre for Atmospheric Science and the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, UK.

Understanding the vagaries of global and regional rainfall patterns is vital for predicting future rainfall trends and extremes, and for developing societies’ resilience to climate change.

This website provides open access to my research as well as blogs and updates.

I’m a member of the High-Resolution Climate Modelling research group, a long-standing collaboration between the University of Reading and the Met Office. To find out more about our work, visit hrcm.ceda.ac.uk.
