Oscar Dimdore-Miles

Academic Profile

I studied a physics undergraduate and masters degrees at the University of Edinburgh. For my masters I focused on evaluating metrics used to measure atmospheric methane concentration levels from the Arctic region and how measurement techniques could be improved. I've also worked at Imperial college in the space and atmospheric physics department as a part of the their UROP summer scheme. Here I looked at water vapour absorption lines in the infrared region using a radiative transfer code.

Current Research

I am currently working with Lesley Gray and Scott Osprey studying techniques for modelling chemical processes in the stratosphere and how these couple to dynamics and climate. We intend to extend this work by investigating teleconnections between stratospheric chemistry variations and surface climate. I am also working on revising a paper with Paul Palmer from the university of Edinburgh on metrics for Arctic methane emission variation.
