I am a Professor in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia.
My research is in dynamical and physical processes with the coupled climate system; in particular mesoscale dynamical meteorology and boundary-layer meteorology.  I am interested in real weather systems: what they look like, how they work physically and how we can describe them mathematically.  Hopefully such work will lead to a better understanding of the climate system and improvements in forecasting and modelling the atmosphere and ocean.
