Biography

I completed my undergraduate studies at UEA, where I obtained a degree in mathematics. During this period I developed an interest in fluid dynamics, in particular its applications in the study of atmospheres and oceans. Following the inception of this interest as an undergraduate, I furthered my studies in this field on an MSc in Atmosphere-Ocean Dynamics in the School of Mathematics at the University of Leeds. During this course I developed a more specific interest in large scale ocean dynamics. I am now studying for a PhD in the School of Mathematics here at UEA, supervised by Prof. David Stevens and Dr. Manoj Joshi

Key Research Interests

For my PhD thesis I am modelling ocean circulation on exoplanets which orbit their parent stars in the habitable zone. This work is motivated by the significant implications the related oceanic heat transport has on the habitability of these planets. My research focuses on investigating the effects of changing different oceanic and planetary paramters on ocean circulation and climate.
