David Rees Jones

Postdoctoral Researcher in Physical Climate Science

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher and am interested in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. I use theoretical mathematical methods and computational simulations to understand a range of geophysical and environmental flows. I focus on situations in which freezing and melting is significant, such as the freezing of suspended crystals in the polar oceans, called frazil ice. Recently, I have moved to the FOALAB to work on subduction-zone geodynamics with Professor Richard Katz.

I previously studied Mathematics, leading to a PhD in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge, supervised by Professor Grae Worster.
