Biography

I have worked at BAS since 2006 and am now based with the Atmosphere, Ice and Climate team.  My main area of research is the study of atmospheric gravity waves as a vertical coupling mechanism in the polar regions. I am also interested in space weather effects on middle atmosphere circulation.

I am joint PI (with Prof. Taylor of Utah State University) of two all-sky airglow imagers and am PI for 3 airglow spectrometers and a ship-borne airglow imager system.  These instruments all observe airglow perturbations at around 90km altitude.

I am on the organising committee for the ANtarctic Gravity Wave Instrument Network (ANGWIN) which is an organisiation looking to study gravity waves across Antarctica using international collaborations.
