Research to operations scientists and scientific software engineers

David is Head of the Research to Operations (R2O) team in Weather Science.

Cristina works on land surface data assimilation with a specific focus on  observations of soil moisture. She is part of the Coupled Data Assimilation team and is based at  the MetOffice@Reading located in the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading.

Rhiannon works as a software developer in the Coupled Data Assimilation team.

Gareth works with data assimilation development for the 1.5 km hi-res UK model, aiming to improve forecasts of key weather elements such as rain, cloud, visibility, screen temperature and 10-metre wind

Stephen helps develop the software infrastructure used to run and evaluate regional NWP systems.

  • Dr Breo Gomez

    Breo works on improving the land representation in the Met Office modelling systems.

  • Dr Chris Harris

    Chris leads the Coupled Data Assimilation team in the Research to Operations (R2O) area of Weather Science.

  • Dr Dingmin Li

Dingmin works on improving high-resolution data assimilation in the Convective-scale NWP group and is based at the MetOffice@Reading Unit in the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading.

  • Dr Adam Martins

    Adam maintains and develops DAE systems code.

  • Adam Maycock

    Adam manages the DAE Systems Group, a team of software engineers with responsibility for provision of Met Office Data Assimilation software for use in operational and research NWP suites. As well as development and provision of the current OPS, VAR and SURF systems, the group is currently planning for next generation DA systems, within the Met Office LFRic software infrastructure framework.

  • Dr Marco Milan

Marco works in the Convective Scale NWP group at MetOffice.

  • Dr Aurore Porson
  • Aurore works on convective-scale ensemble forecasting.

  • Rick Rawlins

    Rick manages a project to develop an atmosphere-ocean coupled model leading to implementation that will replace the current atmosphere-only Met Office operational global model.

  • Dr Steven Sandbach

    Steve is in the data assimilation and ensembles systems group working on Next Generation Data Assimilation software.

  • Dr Adrian Semple

    Adrian evaluates our operational and developmental forecast models and investigates the causes of poor forecasts.

  • Dr Warren Tennant

Warren manages the Global Numerical Weather Prediction Group within the Research to Operations (R2O) area in Weather Science and has a keen research interest in predictability of the earth-system and ensemble forecasting methods.

Mike works in global numerical weather prediction with a special interest in its operational implementation.

Elliott works in the Global Numerical Weather Prediction group with the aim of improving the global weather forecasts.

Carlo works in the Convective-scale Numerical Weather Prediction group with the aim of improving convective-scale ensembles.
