Data Scientist – Model Development
Thomas specialises in atmospheric hazard modelling with a particular emphasis on tropical cyclones.
For the past five years, Thomas’ work has led to the development of various techniques to simulate the variability in severe winds observed from tropical cyclones across the world’s most active basins. More recently his research has focussed on developing risk metrics for heatwaves in Australia.
Thomas holds a PhD from King’s College London where he studied models of the urban boundary layer and a Master of Science in Weather Climate and Modelling from the University of Reading (UK).
