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 have previously worked in the Laboratoire de Physique des Océans of the Université de Bretagne Occidentale in Brest, France (for one year), and in the Atmospheric Chemistry Division of NCAR (for two non-consecutive years). From October 2017, I will be a Royal Society University Research Fellow, also based at Bath University.

Previously, I studied for a DPhil in Atmospheric Physics at the University of Oxford. My project involved working with the late Dr. John Barnett on the detection of gravity waves using data from HIRDLS, and was funded by the Natural Environment Research Council. I was also a member of Trinity College, Trinity MCR, and Oxford University Trampolining Club.

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, and produced a final year report on Atmospheric Turbulence Measurements using SLODAR with Dr. Gordon Love.

This website currently acts mainly as a repository for my photos, CV, and writings although more may get added at some point in the future.
