In the run-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), we asked our researchers to tell us about their work and the challenges of tackling climate change.

Dr Jeremy Walton is a software engineer at the Met Office, where he’s part of a group working on a mathematical model of the Earth’s climate called the UK Earth System Model.

The project involves experts from many different disciplines, and Jeremy’s software expertise helps them make the model as accurate as possible.

At COP26, I hope there will be an understanding of what the science results mean for everyone, and that action will be taken to solve the problems of climate change in the world which our children, and grandchildren, are inheriting from us.
