Key Research Interests

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:

Mountain meteorology: improving weather and climate forecasts in mountainous regions and wind resource predictions through improved understanding and modelling of terrain-induced winds and atmospheric exchanges over mountains

The meteorological drivers of Antarctic ice shelf melt: improving our understanding of how the atmosphere delivers heat to ice shelves, towards improved predictions of future atmosphere-driven ice shelf/sheet retreat and consequently sea-level rise

Air-sea-ice interactions: improving polar weather and climate forecasts through improved understanding and modelling of surface turbulent fluxes over the frozen oceans of the polar regions

Promoting 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; observations and the parameterization of surface turbulent fluxes over sea ice and the atmospheric response to these exchanges.
