In 2015 I began my mathematical studies at Cambridge University, Churchill College, before transferring to Leeds University in 2017. Working at both universities gave me great opportunities to study a range of pure and applied mathematics as well as some computer science. In 2019 I began to consider the possibility of research after graduation and that summer undertook a project in multi-dimensional Lotka-Volterra systems with Stephen Griffiths. In the next year, also with Stephen, I took on a dissertation surveying Internal Gravity waves and a numerical study of Solitary waves. After these projects, I was certain that I wanted to continue working in Fluid Dynamics and so I applied, and was accepted, for my current research degree in Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics. I am fortunate to be supervised in this project, titled the “Stability of zonal flows in quasi-geostrophic plasmas”, by David Hughes and Stephen Griffiths (again).
