I am currently in my final year of postgraduate study within the Planetary Environments Group at The Open University.
After completing my MPhys in Astrophysics (Cardiff University) I worked in industry for a number of years before returning to academia.
I am investigating the formation of small and regional dust storms on Mars, their influence on the Martian climate, and their potential impact on future Mars lander missions. I am studying the processes by which dust is lifted from the Martian surface, and how these dust lifting processes are represented within the UK Mars Global Circulation Model (MGCM).
Interests: planetary atmospheres, climate modelling, numerical simulation.
In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
