Julian Heming
Julian Heming graduated from the Reading University Meteorology Department in 1988 and joined the Met Office, initially working on observation impact assessment.

In the early 1990s he started examining the Met Office global model's capabilities in tropical cyclone forecasting. This culminated in him developing a new tropical cyclone initialisation scheme which improved the Met Office global model's forecast tracks by 30%. Since then he has worked as the Met Office's tropical cyclone specialist dealing with a diverse range of matters from model development to forecast verification and advisory production to media briefings.

He is the Met Office's prime contact with all the regional tropical cyclone forecast centres around the world.
