I am interested in understanding the large-scale dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans of Earth (and sometimes other planets too). I use a combination of idealised models, comprehensive general circulation models, and observational data. My current particular interests include:
- Polar vortex dynamics on Earth, Mars, and Titan
- Jet stream and Hadley cell variability
- Stratospheric ozone depletion
- Southern Ocean-atmosphere interactions
I joined Exeter in 2020, following a PhD in Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Planetary Physics at Oxford, almost four years as a postdoc in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University, and 18 months as a research fellow in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol (where I still have an honorary affiliation).
For all the gory details, you can download my CV (pdf) here.
