Professional summary

Eleanor's main area of work is to represent the land surface in meteorological and hydrological models. This includes using data from different biomes of the world to test and calibrate the JULES model, assessing methods to represent heterogeneous terrain such as snow, vegetation, soil moisture, topography, and key hydrological processes in meteorological land surface schemes such as evaporation, soil processes, soil freezing, snow processes and hydrology. She has a keen interest in using data to test and develop models and has recently been focused on developing a protocol using global, gridded evaporation data to evaluate an ensemble of models.

Eleanor manages the science in several major projects for NERC and the EU. She was previously Editor for Land in the AGU Journal for Advances in Modelling Earth Systems, a member of GEWEX-GLASS representing Benchmarking and Chair of the Science and Applications committee of JULES.
