I am a PhD student on the Environmental Research DTP at the University of Oxford working with Prof David Marshall and Prof James Maddison (University of Edinburgh). I am funded by NERC and the Oxford-Radcliffe Scholarship. For my PhD project, I am developing a constrained down-gradient potential vorticity mixing scheme as a method for parameterizing mesoscale ocean eddies. I run highly idealised simulations of a barotropic ocean basin using a fluid dynamical model which I have developed. I also run simulations using MITgcm.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Mathematics at King's College London with a year abroad at the University of California, San Diego. I have an MSc in Atmosphere, Oceans and Climate from the University of Reading.
