Ana Aguiar is currently a 2nd year DPhil student at the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics in the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Professor Peter Read. The present work aims to study the response of a detached shear layer to boundary conditions of different topography, combined with either prograde or retrograde mechanical forcings, in a barotropic rotating fluid. Her particular interests are in laboratory experiments and numerical simulation of hydrodynamic instabilities and their applications in geophysical and planetary fluid dynamics.
