Academic Profile

I graduated from the University of Exeter in 2017, having studied for an MPhys Physics degree. My Master's thesis was in the field of quantum optics, and so I have now followed the natural progression towards a DPhil in atmospheric physics.

Current Research

I am interested in the role of chaos in the atmosphere especially at timescales of weeks and months. Correctly capturing the highly unpredictable oscillations of the climate system in our weather and climate models is vital not only for producing good long term forecasts but also for understanding the details of climate change.

I will be attempting to understand how stochastic perturbations can be used to improve the representation of these oscillations, and to explain the mechanism for this improvement in the language of dynamical systems theory.
