Oscar Tovey Garcia

Academic Profile

Between 2018 and 2022, I completed the BA and MSci degrees in Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, studying cell biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics in my first year, and ultimately specialising in (theoretical and computational) physics. During this time, I carried out research projects in condensed matter, high energy, and plasma physics at the Cavendish Laboratory, CERN, and the British Antarctic Survey respectively, where I gained experience developing software for scientific research, analysing results meaningfully, and presenting work through different media. Now I turn my attention to climate science, and I am grateful for the opportunity to conduct research with NERC funding at the University of Oxford.

Current Research

I am working to produce a software tool to model the influence of icebergs on ocean flow within idealised Greenland fjords and answer key research questions related to the heat transport, melt rates, and timescales associated with calving events and large iceberg capsizes.
