I am mainly working to evaluate rainfall forecasts for surface water flooding on the iCASP Enhanced Surface Water Flood Forecasting project. This involves converting data from the Met Office forecasting and radar archives to a suitable format, and developing tools to display and evaluate the spatial distribution of accumulated rainfall and its uncertainty for a number of recent events.
I moved to Leeds in 2015, after a PhD at Delft University of Technology and a postdoc in Zurich. Most of my other work involves detailed simulations of cumulus clouds and the interaction between clouds and their environment. I am particularly interested in the influence of turbulence on cloud dynamics and rainfall formation, the ways in which precipitation can invigorate convection, and new computational methods to simulate clouds.
