Group: http://www.met.reading.ac.uk/Research/boundary_layer/

My Research: http://www.met.reading.ac.uk/~qh904213

Responsibilities:

Lecturer

Research Interests:

  • Orographic gravity wave drag in the atmosphere and its parametrization
  • Oceanic turbulence, with a special focus on Langmuir circulations
  • Interfaces between turbulent and non-turbulent flow

Research Projects:

  • Global to Local IMpacts of FLow over Orography (GLIMFLO) (Marie Curie Career Integration Grant) (EU)

Postdoctoral & graduate student supervision

  • Maria Vittoria Guarino (PhD student, co-supervised with Dr. Maarten Ambaum). We aim to understand the generation of Clear Air Turbulence by mountain waves embedded in flows with directional shear, and improve their forecast methods
  • Annelize van Niekerk (PhD student, co-supervised with Prof. Ted Shepherd). This project is about gravity wave drag and model bias.
  • Holly Turner (PhD student, co-supervised with Prof. John Methven and Dr. Simon Vosper). Working in collaboration with the UK Met Office, we aim to improve the orographic drag parametrization of the Unified Model, by incorporating missing effects of vertical wind shear.

Other interests

  • Statics and dynamics of thin-film interfaces
  • Associate Editor of the open-access journal Frontiers - Atmospheric Science
