I am a scientist at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) in Reading, UK. I was previously a DPhil (i.e. PhD) student in the Predictability of Weather and Climate Group, Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics at the University of Oxford, where I graduated in 2019. My DPhil research focused on ways to improve the computational effiency of weather and climate simulators through reduced-precision arithmetic. I am now putting these ideas into practice at ECMWF in order to improve their operational numerical weather prediction system.

I am also interested in science communication, specifically the topics of energy, climate change and weather prediction. To this end, I built a mini weather-simulating supercomputer and also entered the Famelab UK competition, where I came second. If you’d like me to present on any of the above topics, or on science communication more generally, please get in touch at sh0799<at>my.bristol.ac.uk!
