I am a PhD student researching how phytoplankton in the ocean influence aerosols and cloud droplet number concentrations, affectig cloud properties. I am a part of the SENSE CDT, utilising satellite data in environmental science. My project partners are the British Antarctic Survey and the Met Office

In my research I will be using field campaign data to validate satellite retrievals of aerosol and cloud data, which I will then use to determine the factors that lead to high cloud droplet number concentrations near Antarctica and other high latitude regions. I will also test, evaluate and improve the UK Earth System Model to reduce uncertainties in biogenic aerosol formation.
