I am  a senior climate scientist for the Met Office Hadley Centre. My

role involves advising companies and policy-makers on how to build their capacities to deal with their climate risk profile. I have an extensive experience in generating and post-processing climate and weather information.

I  also have a specialist experience in remote sensing (satellite and

ground based) and in the assimilation of such data into numerical

model of weather and climate.

Over the last 10 years I have been the main scientific contributor to a number of projects and programmes involving climate change adaptation and climate services in Asia, Africa, central America the Middle East and Europe.

Being Italian by birth, British by adoption and father of two spaniards (Catalan I should say..) I have a direct experience of the interactions with multinational and multicultural partners.
