My research focuses on understanding how the cryosphere and oceans interact in a variety of scales, primarily by using laboratory experiments and numerical models at the laboratory scale (direct numerical simulations). My PhD Project, investigated how oceanic internal solitary waves (which are waves travel along density interfaces within the water column, and act in a “solitary” manner) interacts with sea ice. This research is primarily laboratory based, using a 7m long flume tank in our laboratory, along with numerical simulations. I am currently working on a project to replicate the buoyant plume produced by melting beneath floating ice shelves in the laboratory
