I am a PhD student interested in studying the climate and atmospheres of moist terrestrial (Earth-like) planets under the supervision of Prof. Geoff VallisDr. Will Seviour and Dr. Stephen Thomson. My research involves using 3D climate models such as Isca to understand cloudy aquaplanets and the greenhouse effect of tidally locked planets better.
