Todd comes to Computer Science following education and work in the atmospheric sciences.  His BSc in Geography at The Ohio State University focussed on meteorology and climate studies, with a minor in archaeology.  As part of his MSc and PhD work at Colorado State University, Todd worked on the development and study of small-scale, cloud-resolving and large-scale, global numerical atmospheric models.  This included work in connection with the Center for Multiscale Modeling of Atmospheric Processes (CMMAP) project and the Dynamics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (DYNAMO) field project, where he set up and operated a weather balloon sounding station in the Maldives.

In 2017, Todd joined the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading as a postdoctoral researcher on the ParaCon project, working toward development of the next generation of atmospheric convection parameterization for the UKMO Unified Model. In this role, he became involved in the development of the Met Office/NERC Cloud (MONC) large-eddy simulation model and joined its Governance and Management Group.

He became a Lecturer in Computer Science (with application to Environmental Science) at the University of Reading in 2022.
