This is my blog and website. You can find out more about it and me here. My main research interests are climate science and the necessary underpinning software engineering, data science, computer science, and compute and storage architectures. Keep up to date using my feed.
My last few blog items (there might be more recent talks, see below):
I was an early adopter of Android tablets, and my most recent one (a 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1) was excellent. It’s still excellent, but runs an ancient version of Android – too ancient for my paranoia about information security, so it needed replacement.
I’ve always wondered where I spend my time. I keep records for some projects because one has to, but I’ve never found a way of recording interesting information easily enough. That changed recently: it turns out it is now possible to get a handle on where you spend time pretty easily, and at the same time learn about what applications you use most.
My last few signifant talks were:
- The Changing Nature of JASMIN
(at JASMIN User Conference, Milton, June, 2018)
- Climate Data: Issues, Systems and Opportunities
(at Data-Intensive weather and climate science, Exeter, June, 2018)
- Weather and Climate Requirements for EuroHPC
(at EuroHPC Requirements Workshop, Brussels, June, 2018)
- Opportunities and Challenges for Data Science in (Big) Environmental Science
(at Data Sciences for Climate and Environment (Alan Turing Institute), London, March, 2018)
