Andy is Director of Research at ECMWF. He has over 25 years experience of performing and leading research, and of translating research outputs into operational model improvements. In so doing he has championed a seamless approach to science and modelling, enabling lessons learned or developments to systems from one timescale to be most effectively applied to others.
Andy is author of over 60 peer-reviewed papers on a variety of topics relating to atmospheric physical processes, parametrization and weather and climate modelling. He has also engaged widely internationally (e.g. through WMO) and been involved in the development of science partnerships to better link the work of operational centres with partner organizations and academia.
