Glenn Carver BSc, MSc, DIC, PhD

Academic Visitor


Glenn Carver is an Academic Visitor in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford, working with the team in the Oxford e-Research Centre. He is an expert in numerical modelling of the atmosphere and has led research and published scientific papers in topics such as atmospheric dynamics, climate and atmospheric chemistry. He has extensive knowledge in the development and use of research and operational atmospheric and climate models, together with applications of scientific data in field campaigns. He gained a BSc in Physics and MSc in Atmospheric Physics from Imperial College, London. He obtained his PhD from the University of Edinburgh before moving to the University of Cambridge as a scientist in the National Centre for Atmospheric Science.

In 2011 he joined the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) as a Senior Scientist where he led the OpenIFS community model programme. This provided the ECMWF operational weather forecast model to researchers in universities and other research institutes world-wide. He also developed a successful workshop series and training programme.
