I’m Sam, a DPhil (i.e. PhD) student in the Predictability of Weather and Climate Group, Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics at the University of Oxford. I previously studied for an MSci in Physics at the University of Bristol.

My interests lie in the intersection of numerical weather prediction, data assimilation and high performance computing. I am interested in finding ways to exploit our knowledge of atmospheric dynamics in order to improve the efficiency of our high performance simulation systems. I am also passionate about building transparent, efficient and readable code to aid the reproducibility of computational science experiments.

I’m supervised by Tim Palmer at Oxford and Peter Düben at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts. I am a member of the Jesus College Middle Common Room, where I was Treasurer from 2017-2018.
