As part of the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in the Application of Artificial Intelligence to the study of Environmental Risks, Ira will be studying for a PhD as part of the Atmosphere-Ocean Dynamics group, under the supervision of Professor Peter Haynes FRS and Professor Rich Kerswell FRS.


Ira's research is currently focused on using Machine Learning to determine the predictive nature of fluid flows within the beta-plane jet system - a model analogous to the Tropospheric Mid-Latitude regions of our atmosphere. Understanding how predictable the system is will inform how a machine learning emulation of the model parameterisations could be developed - leading to forecast models at higher spatial resolutions or with the addition of greater model complexity, both while reducing the associated computational cost.
