Dr. John Charlery received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of the West Indies in 2001 and is the Coordinator of Computer Science and the Acting Head of the Department of Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics at the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies. Prior to joining the UWI in 2002, he was the Senior Meteorologist and then the Deputy Director of the Barbados Meteorological Services, where he served for a number of years. He is therefore a self-described Meteorologist turned Computer Scientist and has directed his attention mostly in the areas of Computer Simulations and Dynamic Modeling. A significant part of his ongoing research and publications is in the areas of climate modeling, interpretation of climate models’ results and climate scenarios generation. He has been running the Climate Modeling Laboratory at the Cave Hill Campus of the UWI from its inception in 2002 where the emphasis is on dynamic and statistical regional climate modeling over the Caribbean. His primary interest is in the identification and development of methodologies which address small scale issues (e.g. small islands, watersheds, mesoscale, etc.) in global climate change processes. To that end, climate change downscaling (in its varied forms) and the implications for socio-economic livelihood and infrastructure, particularly in the Caribbean, have been of particular interest.
