I'm a Postdoctoral Research Fellow currently working on the CIRCULATES project. My work involves assessment of cloud feedbacks in current coupled climate models.

Research Interests:

  • Representation of the tropical climate and weather in coupled climate models and forecast models.
  • Uncertainty in future changes in climate.
  • Tropical waves and their links to high impact weather in Southeast Asia.
  • Dynamics and teleconnections of modes of variability (e.g. El Nino-Southern Oscillation) in the Tropical Pacific.

Current Research Projects:

  • CIRCULATES: A project examining uncertainty in cloud feedbacks.
  • FORSEA (University of Reading): This project is part of the WCSSP: SE Asia programme, examining how well newly developed Met Office convective scale forecasting systems predict the timing, location and severity of high impact weather in SE Asia
