Dr Anurag Dipankar has been involved in high resolution modelling for 9 years. He has contributed in the development of the German operational global forecasting model, ICON, and has been a lead developer in creating a large-eddy simulation package for ICON. He is currently involved in the development and tuning of the new convective-scale Numerical Weather Prediction model (SINGV) for Singapore. This project is a joint collaboration between CCRS and UK Met. Office. He is also involved in a scientific project on understanding the role of urbanisation in Singapore’s climate in collaboration with the National University of Singapore.
