I am a senior lecturer in the Exeter Climate Systems group, which is part of the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter.

At present, my main research interests are:

To find out more about what we do, please visit the Research and Group pages.

I joined Exeter in 2010, after a PhD in the Climate Dynamics Group in Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics at Oxford, a brief stint at CEH Wallingford, two years at the University of California, Berkeley and three years at the UK Met Office Hadley Centre.

I am on the editorial board of Scientific Reports, a new open-access peer-reviewed journal from Macmillan. Our only criterion for publishing submissions is technical accuracy, allowing the reader to decide which papers are important.

You can see my work weblog here if you're within the University and I've given you permission.

PhD opportunity!

I am currently looking for a PhD student to begin in September 2016 or January 2017:

Geoff Vallis and I are looking for someone to join our team trying to understand the interaction between atmospheric dynamics, radiation and regional climate change using idealised numerical models. The project would have a focus on either radiative feedbacks or convection or some mixture of the two. (We are open to negotiation!) The official advert is here. Please contact me or Geoff if you are interested. This project is funded - the successful applicant is offered a place.
