Dynamics research scientists
Our dynamics research scientists
- Dr Thomas Allen
Thomas works on numerical aspects of the dynamics equations. This includes aspects of the transport schemes and solution to elliptic equations on massively parallel computers.
Tom researches and develops new algorithms and techniques for GungHo, the Met Office's next-generation dynamical core.
- Dr Ian Boutle
Ian works on cloudy boundary layers and their representation within the Met Office's Unified Model
- Dr Terry Davies
Terry develops and maintains the atmospheric dynamical core of the Met Office's Unified Model.
Christine works on the development of next generation atmospheric models
- Dr Thomas Melvin
Thomas works on developing and testing new numerical techniques for the Met Office's Unified Model dynamical core.
Lewis is a foundation scientific software engineer, employed as a member of the Excalibur pool, working under the Next Generation Modelling Systems (NGMS) programme.
- Dr Ben Shipway
Ben is Head of the Dynamics Research Group and leads the scientific development of LFRic - the next generation replacement for the Unified Model.
- Dr Chris Smith
Chris develops and tests computer code used for simulating large-scale atmospheric motion.
- Prof. John Thuburn
Numerical methods and geophysical fluid dynamics are the core areas of John's research activities.
- Dr Nigel Wood
Nigel is the Met Office Principal Fellow for Next Generation Modelling Systems.
- Dr Mohamed Zerroukat
Mohamed works on numerical aspects of the dynamics equations. This includes advection/transport schemes and their application to passive tracers and other prototype dynamical sets of equations, like shallow water equations.
