Hugo Lambert


I am an associate professor (equivalent of UK reader) in the Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics 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.

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


The CIRCULATES project is a collaboration between Exeter, Reading, Imperial, St Andrews, The Met Office, RAL and CEH Wallingford to improve our understanding of cloud feedbacks and their interaction with atmospheric circulation and apply that knowledge to model development and projections of future climate change. One new post is available:

The The PDRF will focus on quantifying and reducing uncertainty in estimates of future climate feedback and climate change made from ensembles of novel climate model simulations at high and GCM resolutions and new satellite observations of the Pacific. Please contact me or Mat Collins if you have questions.
