I am an EPSRC funded student and I work in Data Assimilation looking at how introducing correlated errors impacts convergence in variational assimilation. This involves numerical linear algebra, small scale numerical tests and operational scale experiments on the Met Office system.

I am a PhD candidate in Mathematics of Planet Earth Centre for Doctoral Training. I am working with smart meter data to try and create better forecasts for short term household electricity demand using extreme value theory.

I am Professor of Applied Mathematics and currently President of the SIAM UKIE Section. I hold a joint appointment at Reading in the Departments of Mathematics and Meteorology and am a Principal Investigator of the National Centre for Earth Observation. My primary research is in numerical analysis with applications in numerical linear algebra, control theory, and data assimilation. Data assimilation is key to the accurate prediction of evolving dynamical systems. All my favourite theoretical and numerical techniques are needed in this field and there are many open problems yet to be solved.
