Hi, I’m Will. I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Atmosphere and Ocean Dynamics and Transport Group of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University.

I am interested in understanding the large-scale dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans of Earth (and sometimes other planets too) in order to make better predictions of future weather and climate. I use a combination of idealised models, comprehensive general circulation models, and observational data. Current particular interests include stratospheric polar vortex dynamics, jet stream and Hadley cell variability, and atmosphere-ocean interactions. I am part of the NSF Frontiers in Earth System Dynamics Ozone and Climate Project.

I am also a keen advocate for ways to make science more accessible and reproducible, particularly through learning from practices used in open source software development.
