## Personal profile

### Research interests

I have broad research interests in interdisciplinary industrial and applied mathematics with a particular interest in complex nonlinear problems arising in real applications. Typically these involve the solution (analytically or numerically) of partial differential equations. A large amount of my work for the last ten years has been in numerical weather prediction and data assimilation in close collaboration with the Met Office (which I visit very frequently). My algorithms are now incorporated into the Met Office operational weather forecasting code where they have made a significant difference to their accuracy and received a Knowledge Transfer Award. I am also working on climate modelling using modern mathematical and computational methods and am actively involved in a number of international climate modelling networks, including CliMathNet which I co-direct and the Maths of Planet Earth programme. I also collaborate with the energy industry, the aerospace industry, the telecommunications industry and the food industry. Anywhere that maths can be applied is of interest to me.

### Public Understanding of Science and Engagement

I believe very strongly indeed that the excitement and importance of mathematics and science should be communicated to as wide an audience as possible. I am actively involved in doing this, both in developing programmes with young people through my positions of Prof of Mathematics at the Royal Institution and my vice-presidentship of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, and in directing the Bath Taps Into Science Festival. My recent projects include two Citizen Science Projects in Climate Science and I am also working closely with Policy Makers involved in climate science. The latter has involved regular discussion/policy meetings with senior civil servants through the CliMathNet network, and also in running programmes on climate science with the British Science Association, the Science Museum and the Royal Institution.
