Welcome - Dr Ryan Neely
We are very happy to welcome a new member of NCAS. Dr Ryan Neely recently joined NCAS in the new position of Lecturer in Observational Atmospheric Science associated with the NCAS radar. This role is a joint position with the Institute of Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS) at the University of Leeds.
He was most recently a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Advanced Study Program at NCAR, Boulder. Ryan will contribute to the existing radar group led by Professor Chris Collier and will lead in new areas that are strategically important to NCAS and ICAS.
Ryan's research is geared towards understanding clouds and aerosol processes in the past, present and future climates. He has made significant contributions to the science of lidar instrumentation, Arctic cloud observations and global modelling. He has recently been involved with a long-term observational programme to investigate clouds and tropospheric properties at Summit, Greenland that utilizes an array of active and passive remote sensing instruments.
