Wavebreak Supercell Cyclone Arctic Lightening

Hi!! I'm Amee, currently a postgraduate research student working in the School of Environmental Sciences at the UEA. This is my personal website that I have created to document my research, postgraduate life and general interests.

. I am active on twitter, LinkedIn and Research Gate so feel free to add me if you have an account too, or your could contact me directly on here! To learn more about me click on one of the links below.


My current research project is investigating how stratospheric processes can interact with ocean circulation. To find out what I am currently up to check out my 'Research' blog category.



As an undergrad student I studied mathematics and I am extremely passionate about the subject. I especially love how you can use maths model the world we live in.
