Academic Profile

My master’s project was in the field of Condensed Matter, but having done previous work in climate physics, I found where my interests truly lie. Previously I have done research on the effects of convection on the heat flux out of arctic melt ponds, trying to derive a physical relationship between incoming solar flux and heat flux to the underlying ice.

For my DPhil however I am focusing on studying the effects of cloud-aerosol interactions on radiative forcing.

Current Research

Cloud-aerosol interactions provide one of the largest sources of uncertainty in global climate models (GCMs), so being able to constrain the indirect-radiative effects of atmospheric aerosol in GCMs could provide a dramatic improvement in future forecasts.
