Bobby Antonio passes MScR viva!

Bobby’s thesis “Post-processing East African precipitation forecasts using a generative machine learning model” was supervised by Peter Watson and Laurence Aitchison. It is a very impressive piece of work, in which he developed a machine learning model which improves the diurnal cycle of rainfall over East Africa.

Bobby already has a PhD in computing, and the MScR has been an opportunity for him to learn about weather and climate. He is now undertaking a postdoc at University of Oxford.

Congratulations Bobby! And big thanks to the external examiner, Neil Hart from University of Oxford. Rachel James was the internal examiner.
