Scott Wales supports the researchers at CLEX who work with the Unified Model, the atmospheric component of the ACCESS model. He helps researchers to understand, run and modify the model, and works with our partner institutions to make their model configurations usable on the NCI supercomputers.
Scott also works closely with leaders across the ACCESS community, providing technical advice and helping to develop and maintain the infrastructure needed to run the model at NCI such as the Accessdev and Subversion servers. He also works with our partners at the UK Met Office on collaborative development across the entire UM partnership.
Scott has experience in a variety of different computational modelling techniques, including numerical atmospheric models, cosmological N-body simulations, and stochastic partial differential solvers. He has a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Physics from the University of Queensland.
