Research Interests:
  • Convective Rainbands
  • Orography

I am a first year PhD student supervised by Sue Gray . My project. entitled "The generation of downwind rainbands by mountains", focuses on idealised modelling of precipitation bands that form downwind of moutainous terrain. The main objectives are to:

  • Develop a regime diagram the identifies the mechanisms of downwind band formations for a range of environmental flows and mountain heights.
  • Explore the development of quasi-stationary precipitation bands in orographically generated negative PV banners.
