Chloe Moore

In January 2016, I joined the Royal Meteorological Society as Public Engagement Programme Manager, as maternity cover for Cat Muller until December 2016.

My role involves engaging with our members and all those who are involved and passionate about weather and climate, including students, professional meteorologists, academics and amateur enthusiasts, as well as the wider public.

I am responsible for the Society’s communications, which includes our online news features, theWeather club newsletter, all our social media channels plus outreach activities. This can range from attending events, presenting talks, discussing the latest weather on the radio, and recording podcasts. I am also involved with managing the publication process of the Society’s briefing papers, produced by the Society’s Climate Science Communications Group (CSCG).

My interest in meteorology spans back to an early age, watching television weather forecasts and following extreme weather stories in the media. Prior to going to university, my initial ambition was to become a broadcast meteorologist, however work experience with the Met Office and at RNAS Culdrose broadened my view of the role of the meteorologist.

In 2011, I enrolled on the BSc programme in Climate Science at the University of East Anglia. Whilst studying, I frequently wrote for the science and environment section of the student newspaper, Concrete. In my final year, I acted as Student Promotions Officer for the Royal Meteorological Societ's East Anglia Centre.

Shortly after graduation in July 2014, I joined Weatherquest as an Operational Meteorologist, writing weather forecasts for the media, including the Times Newspaper, and providing forecasts to the agricultural industry. In March 2015, I was accepted onto ICS; an overseas volunteering programme funded by the UK Government's Department for International Development. This provided the opportunity that took me to work and live in La Paz, Bolivia, where I was volunteering on projects focussed on supporting people to understand their human rights. 

Outside of work, I love to travel and explore the world and hope one of my next trips will take me storm chasing!
