 Mathematical Techniques for Atmospheric Convection to Improve Severe Weather Prediction


Research Interests:

  • Conditional averaging methods for the representation of atmospheric convection
  • Convection parametrisation
  • Turbulence (not just in the atmosphere!)
  • Numerical modelling
  • Geophysical fluid dynamics

PhD Project:

Other scientific interests

  • Oceanography, particularly the parametrisation of mesoscale eddies, the sub-mesoscale regime, and their interactions with the larger-scale flow
  • Renormalisation methods, particularly for applications to turbulence
  • Geometric methods in physics
  • Teaching science
  • Science outreach and integration

Departmental responsibilities:

    With my partner-in-crime Jake Bland I co-run Mesoscale Group. This group is for all researchers in the department whose research investigates atmospheric phenomena on the (poorly-defined) "mesoscale", which is approximately 1-1000km in horizontal extent. I am also in charge of keeping the Meteorology building's coffee room running smoothly... We are, after all, just machines for turning coffee into papers.

Non-scientific interests

    In my spare time I like to read, write, play music, and cycle. If there were more spare time available, I'd play ice hockey...
