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


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. Machine learning emulators of physical systems are able forecast at higher spatial resolutions or with the addition of greater physical model complexity, both while dramatically reducing the associated computational cost, however there are many questions as to what the Machine Learning models have learned and what this can teach us about the physical models we are using. More information can be found here
