Biography

William Morrison is a postdoc at the University of Freiburg since June 2022. He did Physical Geography (BSc) at King's College London, UK (2012), and a PhD at the University of Reading, UK (2018). Between 2018 and 2022 he worked as a postdoc at the University of Reading.

Research

William is interested in urban land surface temperature derived from satellites and validated using novel ground-based networks of weather stations. He is interested in using these observations to help validate and improve the next-gen weather forecasting models (e.g. O100 m resolution).
