My first career was the Royal Navy. I specialised in meteorology and oceanography and completed a variety of headquarters and sea going jobs including: HMS INVINCIBLE, HMS FEARLESS, NATO Commander Naval Forces South and the UK Subamarine Operations Division.
Whilst I now teach mathematics in school I retain an interest in meteorology and have enjoyed following the development of web based platforms that now communicate meteorological data. I am struck by the visual appeal of some of this data and relish the way science, mathematics and nature come together in this subject area. My interests also extend beyond the science into the geopolitical impacts of climate and weather.
