Senior Scientist, European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts
Anna Agustí-Panareda is a senior scientist at the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) working in the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service. She holds a PhD in meteorology from the University of Reading. Her scientific background is in the field of Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP). She has studied the impact of observations and land surface processes on the quality of weather forecasts and pollution transport. Her current research focuses on various aspects of the modelling of carbon dioxide and methane from emissions and natural fluxes at the surface to atmospheric transport, within the Integrated Forecasting System (IFS) at ECMWF. Anna is involved in several projects funded by the European Commission to develop a verification and support capacity for monitoring anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases. As part of the CoCO2 project, she is co-leading the efforts to implement a global greenhouse gas emission monitoring system within the IFS.
