Hello and Welcome

A Short Biography

Hello, and welcome to my website! My name is Corwin Wright, and I am a postdoctoral scientist working in the Centre for Space, Atmospheric and Oceanic Science at the University of Bath, where I carry out research on vertical coupling between the lower atmosphere and ionosphere via gravity waves. I currently work with Cathryn Mitchell, and previously worked with Nick Mitchell. From October 2017, I will be a Royal Society University Research Fellow, also based at Bath University.

I have also previously worked with Robert Scott in the Laboratoire de Physique des Océans of the Université de Bretagne Occidentale in Brest, France (for one year), and with John Gille in the Atmospheric Chemistry Division of NCAR (now ACOM) for two non-consecutive years. Before my postdoctoral research, I studied for a DPhil in Atmospheric Physics at the University of Oxford (Trinity College) with the late John Barnett, working on the detection of gravity waves using data from HIRDLS, where I was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council.

At various past times, I have been a student on the joint MSc in Photonics and Optoelectronic Devices between the University of St Andrews and Heriot-Watt University, where my place was funded by the EPSRC, and on the MSci Physics course at the University of Durham, where I was a member of Collingwood College.
