I am a qualified meteorologist specialising in (and also passionate about) severe thunderstorms. Large hail gets me really excited and I dream of chasing tornadoes in the US.
A few weather-related hobbies:
- taking photos of lightning, although by no means in a professional context
- time-lapsing of thunderstorm/cloud development (which I post on Youtube)
I am not a forecaster, although I do have undergraduate training in forecasting.
