I studied Physics at the University of Manchester and attended the University of Leeds for my PhD, where I used global and regional modelling tools to investigate Arctic aerosol and clouds.
I joined BAS in June 2022 as a modeller on the PolarRES project (www.polarres.eu). I run high-resolution regional models over areas in the Arctic and Antarctica to study the effects of sea ice vs. open ocean on aerosol emissions and clouds. We are trying to understand the climate effects of polynyas and open leads in the changing sea ice regions at both poles. We are also exploring how well our models simulate atmospheric processes related to clouds over sea ice.
