PhD Researcher

University of Bath

VHF studies of the Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere.

This work involved writing bespoke Matlab programs to analyse and display sophisticated datasets. I have presented my work at several international conferences and have published material in internationally recognised scientific journals.

Jun 2003 - Jul 2003

Research Assistant

University College London

I assisted with a research project at the Atmospheric Physics Lab at University College London, University of London. During this time I developed programs using IDL and linux based systems and was involved with data management, organisation and analysis.

Research Interests : Atmospheric Gravity Waves, meteor radar, airglow cameras, dynamics of the MLT region.

Personal Interests : Photography, web design, learning new things, canoeing


I am a Research Officer at the University of Bath working in the area of atmospheric physics.

I work with data from atmospheric radars, airglow cameras, and model output. I designed and implemented data analysis techniques and present my work both orally, at international conferences, and in written form in scientific journals.

My PhD thesis is entitled 'VHF Radar Studies of the Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere'.
