Personal profile

Research overview

I am an oceanographer and climate scientist. My research is concerned with understanding how climate-relevant tracers, such as heat and carbon dioxide, are taken up by, stored within, and transported around the ocean. This is achieved by a combination of atmosphere-ocean exchange, the large-scale ocean circulation, turbulent ocean dynamics, and biogeochemical processes. I'm interested in understanding the impact of these processes on the marine environment as well as Earth's climate more broadly. I use a host of tools in my research, including large-scale numerical simulations, process models, theoretical ideas, trajectory analysis, and ocean observations.
