Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics

Leo is a PhD Student in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, and also at the British Antarctic Survey.

Leo's primary interest is the dynamics of the ice-ocean boundary layer, with specific focus on double diffusive effects caused by the larger molecular diffusivity of heat relative to salt. He works on observations of the under ice shelf environment made by the team at the British Antarctic Survey, as well as numerical simulations based on the observations. Leo also considers the problem of double diffusion more widely, studying theoretical results and their application to oceanic data
