Cloud Formation on Exoplanets: Different Cloud Regimes for Changing Global Parameters

This is my research essay which reports the findings of my research project, which forms part of a larger undertaking within the Centre for Exoplanet Science. It looks at how cloud formation on exoplanets is affected by global parameters and the implications this has for upcoming observations.

I am a third year undergraduate studying astrophysics at the University of St Andrews. My research interest is in exoplanetary science, specifically cloud formation in exoplanetary atmospheres and how this process influences the abundance of bio-tracers in atmospheres.

I enjoy running in St Andrews and at home. I am an active contributor to Strava, and train regularly for running events. I also frequently use the university gym and follow regular fitness routines to complement my running.

My passions also extend to music: I play and conduct in the university wind orchestra and I have also played with several brass bands in the local community. Additionally, I am the events manager for the university music society, and I am working on new and exciting ways to organise online socials for the society.
