Dr Ben Maybee


I am a postdoctoral researcher based in the School of Earth and Environment, originally with a background in high energy physics. I am interested in atmospheric dynamics, global teleconnections and ensemble rainfall forecasting.

Research interests

Current project: iCASP Enhanced Surface Water Flood Forecasting, testing enhanced SWF flood forecasts in a Yorkshire testbed.

Previous project: Impact of the Madden-Julian oscillation on interannual variability of East African rainfall, supported by the HyCristal project.
