Dr Ben Maybee
I am a postdoctoral researcher based in the School of Earth and Environment. My research focus is the dynamics and prediction of deep convection and its associated hazards, but my original background is high energy physics. I am interested in all aspects of atmospheric dynamics, global teleconnections and ensemble rainfall forecasting and verification.
I am currently working as part of the NERC Land Impacts on Mesoscale Convective Systems (LMCS) project, investigating the influence of land-surface variability on the dynamics of MCSs in models and observations.
- iCASP Enhanced Surface Water Flood Forecasting, testing enhanced SWF flood forecasts in a Yorkshire testbed and conducting forecast verification over Northern England.
- Impact of the Madden-Julian oscillation on interannual variability of East African rainfall, supported by the HyCristal project.
