Wendy ensures that CEDA meets its targets to provide data management support for NERC funded projects in the atmospheric and earth observation fields. She has particular interest in ground-based and airborne observations and is responsible for all of CEDAs aircraft datasets including the FAAM aircraft, NERC-ARF and the European Facility for Airborne Research. She joined CEDA in 2003 following a postdoctoral fellowship studying urban air quality and has a PhD in Atmospheric Physics from Aberystwyth which used sonde and aircraft observations to study tropospheric ozone.
Matt is responsible for the delivery of JASMIN as a service to its user community, including CEDA. He liaises with staff in STFC’s Scientific Computing Department responsible for operating JASMIN’s infrastructure components (storage, network, compute) and leads the team tasked with supporting users to gain access to, and exploit JASMIN effectively for their scientific needs.
He started at RAL in 2000, initially helping to establish the NERC Earth Observation Data Centre (NEODC), now part of the CEDA Archive.
He holds a BSc in Geophysics (Geological) from the University of Leicester and a PhD from the University of Durham, where he used global earthquake data to study the structure of the Earth’s mantle beneath Iceland.
Ag manages a number of activities and engages with many external groups. Based in Exeter, he has a particular focus on our interactions with the Met Office. He oversees the data pipeline that delivers Petabytes of climate simulations through the Model Intercomparison Projects (such as CMIP5/6) and looks after the UK Climate Projections User Interface which is managed by CEDA and runs on the JASMIN platform. Ag has a keen interest in developing better tools for improving data curation, management and delivery. He also oversees the CEDA training programme.
