I am a first year PhD student working under the supervision of Dr R. Neely, looking into LIDAR data from the ICESat-2 satellite to investigate the behaviour of mixed phase clouds in the polar regions. I will be looking at validating the ATL-09 atmospheric backscattering dataset with ground-based observations from Summit (Greenland) and Rothera (Antarctica), after which I can start to look at larger regions over the poles to observe the behaviour of the mixed phase clouds, and to try and quantify some of the microphysical processes occuring.
I graduated with a degree in Physics from the University of Oxford in 2022, and my final year project was in modelling the band structure of iron-based superconductors, and developing a tool to aid in experimental interpretation of results from ARPES experiments.
I am part of the SENSE (Centre for Satellite Data in Environmental Science) CDT, which is funded by the NERC. https://eo-cdt.org/
