Key Research Interests and Expertise

In my research to date, I have used field observations and numerical weather prediction models to study the dynamical meteorological processes and atmosphere-surface exchanges that shape weather and climate in polar and mountainous environments.

My interests span the following fields:

Polar meteorology and climate, ice shelf surface energy budgets

Mountain meteorology, orographically forced flows in complex terrain, foehn winds, mountain drag

Air-sea-ice interaction, turbulent exchanges of momentum over sea ice

Links between science and art

Recent work has involved air-sea-ice interaction in the Arctic Ocean using a combination of aircraft observations and high resolution model simulations; the atmospheric forcing of Larsen Ice Shelf; orographic flows and their parameterization in weather and climate models; surface energy exchange over snow and ice; inferences for exoplanet climate from polar weather dynamics; and observations and the parameterization of surface turbulent fluxes over sea ice and the atmospheric response to these exchanges.

Expertise related to UN Sustainable Devlopment Goals
