Personal profile

Areas of Expertise

My areas of expertise include

  • The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO)
  • Tropical-extratropical interactions
  • MJO teleconnection patterns
  • Evaluation of coupled climate models 
  • Large scale atmospheric dynamics

Biography

I am a PhD student based in the School of Mathematics, although I have links to the School of Environmental Science through the Centre for Oceanic and Atmospheric Science.

My PhD project is supervised by Prof Adrian Matthews and Prof David Stevens.

Before starting my PhD I undertook an Integrated Masters, also within the School of Mathematics at UEA. 

Key Research Interests

My research centres around the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) and its global impacts. I study these teleconnection patterns and how they relate to other weather systems such as the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and the Pacific North American Pattern (PNA).

Currenty I am looking at if and how these connections change in time, including as a result of anthropogenic climate change. This involves working with a range of obervational and reanalysis datasets alongside the CMIP6 suite of coupled climate models.

Research Group or Lab Membership

I am currently a member of the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.

External Activities

Alongside my PhD, I am working with the Royal Meteorological Society as a Science Engagement Fellow. My focus is on engagement between the Society and early careers.

As part of this role, I have project managed the creation and development of a new Youth and Early Careers Special Interest Group.

Expertise related to UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. This person’s work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 13 - Climate Action
