Senior ScientistForecast Department, Evaluation Section, Verification and Observation Monitoringpage tabs Profile Summary: Mohamed Dahoui is a senior scientist working in the evaluation section at ECMWF. He joined ECMWF in 2008 to work on the monitoring of observations (satellite and in-situ). The work involves development of monitoring tools and evaluation of monitoring statistics. Mohamed is also involved in the routine monitoring of ECMWF’s forecasting system. Mohamed obtained his PhD in 2006 on the subject of assimilation of satellite infrared observations in cloudy conditions.Mohamed participates to regular meetings of EUMETSAT committees (STG-OPS working group and MTG-FCI MAG) Professional interests: Observations monitoringObservations based diagnosticsTropical cyclones forecastingMachine learning Career background: 2015 – present: Senior scientist at ECMWF2008 – 2015: Scientist at ECMWF2006 – 2008: Head of Installation and Maintenance Service at the Moroccan Meteorological Service1997 – 2006: Meteorological Engineer at the Moroccan Meteorological Service Publications 2022Linus Magnusson, Magdalena A.
