Dr. Miguel Teixeira

Lecturer in Meteorology

Responsibilities:

  • Lecturer
  • Library manager

Research Interests:

  • Orographic gravity wave drag in the atmosphere and its parametrization
  • Oceanic turbulence, with a special focus on Langmuir circulations
  • Interfaces between turbulent and non-turbulent flow

Postdoctoral & graduate student supervision

  • Jasmine George (PhD student), co-supervised with Dr Alan Grant, Dr Jean Bidlot (ECMWF) and the Mathematics Department. We aim to undestand how surface layer scaling applies to the upper part of the oceanic boundary layer, and how it is modified by wave effects.
