My work is concerned with understanding the interactions between climate and chemistry in the stratosphere using a range of tools from theoretical frameworks to numerical models. I am based in the Mathematics department at the University of Cambridge.
I am currently collaborating with people in the Atmosphere, Ice and Climate group at BAS as part of a Marsden project (Led by Holly Winton) on how did changing sea ice conditions have impacted primary production in the Ross Sea over the past 200 years.
I have previously been a postdoctoral researcher at BAS working on the ISOL-ICE project (https://www.bas.ac.uk/project/isolex-isotopic-constraints-on-past-ozone-layer-and-stratosphere-troposphere-exchange-in-polar-ice/) which explored the use of a novel isotope proxy in polar ice to constrain past ozone layer changes over Antarctica.
Chemical, dynamical and radiative interactions in the stratosphere. Stratosphere-troposphere coupling.
