Dr. Andrew K. Mirza

Research Scientist (NCAS)


Research Scientist in the High-Resolution Climate Modelling (HRCM) research group (, a long-standing collaboration between NCAS-Climate at the University of Reading and the Met Office Hadley Centre. My principal role is research software engineering, helping to develop and manage large-scale ocean and atmospheric simulations on various high-performance computing platforms, e.g., Jasmin ( and ARCHER2 (  My secondary role is data analysis ranging from metrics for model performance to the statistical analysis of the climate model results.
