Areas of Expertise
My areas of expertise include
- The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO)
- Tropical-extratropical interactions
- Decadal scale climatic variability
- Evaluation of coupled climate models
- Large scale atmospheric dynamics
I am a Senior Research Associate based in the Climatic Research Unit, School of Environmental Sciences. Presently, I am working on the PROMS (Pacific Rainfall on Millennial Scales) project.
I have recently submitted my PhD thesis, having studied for both an MMath (Master of Mathematics) and PhD in the School of Mathematics at UEA.
Key Research Interests
As a member of the PROMS project, I study decadal scale variability of South Pacific hydroclimate, specifically the South Pacific Convergence Zone. By using and idealised climate model (IGCM4), we hope to simulate SPCZ variability over recent millennia, and uncover the drivers of this variability. We will also be working closely with a team of paleoclimatologists from the Universities of Southampton and Northumbria to tie our modelling studies to climate proxies in the South Pacific region.
I have also recently finished my PhD, in which I studied decadal scale variability in the extratropical response to the Madden—Julian Oscilation. To do this, I used both reanalysis products and climate model simulations to quantify MJO teleconnections and how they are modulated by different forcings.
Research Group or Lab Membership
I am currently a member of the Climatic Research Unit and the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.
