Ms Rachel Furner


  • 2018-present: PhD student at DAMTP, partnered by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), supervised by Emily Shuckburgh at BAS and Peter Haynes at DAMTP
  • 2016-2018: Coordinator of the CCIMI and CMIH
  • 2008-2016: Coastal modelling scientist, UK Met Office
  • 2004-2007: BA Mathematics, University of Oxford


Rachel is part of the Dynamical Meteorology & Oceanography research group at DAMTP, and the Polar Oceans group at BAS. Her current research looks at novel modelling techniques for the physical ocean and ocean carbon cycle, with a focus on big data approaches, such as machine learning. One particular focus is on using statistical and machine learning methods to produce mroe computationally efficient analogues of physically based ocean models. Her past work involved process based modelling of the physical ocean, specifically the UK shelf seas.
