Awards

I was awarded the Royal Meteorological Society Michael Hunt Award for 2014. The award is given biennially for "excellence in increasing the understanding of meteorology or its applied disciplines among members of the general public, including particular groups (eg. school children, yachtsmen, etc)" and was established in commemoration of forecast presenter Michael Hunt. 

In 2015 WAM was awarded the European Meteorological Society Outreach and Communications Award - the award extends to me by virtue of being its founder and director. This award is presented each year to projects that explore new ways to communicate the science of meteorology, climatology and related fields and its consequences to the general public.
