Role: Project Manager
Richard leads the Monthly to Decadal Applications group, developing practical climate prediction products that can be readily used to inform planning and policy. This is done by distilling complex information from climate models and other sources into informative ‘user-friendly’ formats. Richard’s main research interest is working with Climate Centres in Africa to better understand and predict African rainy seasons and near-term (next 10 years) climate change, and working with the WMO to strengthen international collaboration in long-range forecasting. Richard has a Ph.D. in meteorology from Edinburgh University.
