Oscar Dimdore-Miles

Graduate student

My work focuses on modes of variability found in the circulation of the stratosphere and how they link to other parts of the climate system. Recently, I've been studying the polar vortex and disruption events known as sudden stratospheric warmings and working towards improving the representation of these events in large scale climate models. Other work focuses on chemical-dynamical coupling in the atmosphere and looks at how ozone chemistry can influence dynamics of the stratosphere. I primarily use the MetOffice models submitted to CMIP6, HadGEMGC3.1 and UKESM. My PhD is a part of the NERC funded DTP in environmental science.

Recent work outside of my PhD estimated the undocumented spread of Covid-19 in the absence of large scale, random testing.

Before my PhD, I gained an integrated masters in physics from the University of Edinburgh.

DTP profile:

Demonstrator for prelims (1st year) and part A (2nd year) scientific computing course.

Marker for the PAT and Physics Olympiad.
