I graduated from Imperial College London in 2020 with a first class degree in Geophysics (MSci). I aspire to do a research career in numerical modelling of fluid dynamics, developing and extending cutting-edge scientific computational models for enhanced forecasting of natural phenomena.
During my degree, I enjoyed multiple research opportunities at AMCG research group at Imperial. In summer 2018, I undertook a BP-funded project in coupling numerical simulations of earthquake-generated tsunamis with a surrogate modelling framework. The aim of the project was to predict maximum wave heights at the coast for a range of input earthquake source parameters. In summer 2019, I conducted an EPSRC-funded project exploring landslide-generated tsunamis. In this project, I quantified the severity of events in terms of potential losses from building damage. This project became a foundation for my MSci thesis, for which I estimated damages to Scottish coastal infrastructure from a landslide tsunami, similar to historical Storegga event off the coast of Norway.
As a part of my degree, I completed a year abroad placement at the University of California, Berkeley. During my placement, I worked as a part of Earth Imaging research group (https://rallen.berkeley.edu/ ) on subduction zone dynamics in Alaska derived from seismic anisotropy observations. Apart from research, I was also able to broaden my horizons and take classes outside of standard Geophysics degree. I took particular interest in fluid dynamics, where I attended undergraduate atmospheric dynamics and graduate environmental and geological fluid mechanics courses.
