My recent focus has been on the application of metrology to satellite measurements to propagate uncertainty and generate climate data records with colleagues in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading and NPL while working for the H2020 FIDUCEO, ESA SST_CCI and C3S EQCO projects. I will shortly begin work at UEA CRU on the GloSAT project.
