I am currently working with Dr Michael Herzog on the NERC funded volcanic ash project R4Ash to determine the effect of ash aggregation on the near-source volcanic plume development. I am also part of the PARACON project where we focus on improving parameterizations of convective clouds in atmospheric models for numerical climate and weather prediction.
