I spent the summer of 2016 investigating the variation of OHC with season, climate cycle, location and wind stress in a number of ocean basins, motivated by the fact that temporal and spatial variations in OHC are less well understood than those of the Earth’s surface temperature. I estimated heat content and its rate of change using data from the World Ocean Atlas (Isii et al 2006) and performed an initial investigation of correlations between heat content and potential driver environmental variables.
I completed an M.Phys. at Swansea University in 2017, with a dissertation on chaos in classical and quantum mechanical models for planetary systems. I was awarded the PM Davidson Prize for Best Theoretical Project at Level M.
