My interests include the study of air-sea interaction and particularly the development of air-sea interaction datasets. Current projects include:

  • The continued development of the NOC Surface Flux and Meteorological Dataset (currently v2.0)

  • The International Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (ICOADS)

  • Development of a new 150-year Sea Surface Temperature (SST) dataset from ICOADS in the HOSTACE project

  • Air-sea interaction and ocean heat content in the Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal (BoBBLE)

  • Accuary of esimates of air-sea fluxes of carbon in the RAGNARoCC project

  • Quantification of bias and uncertainty in marine surface observations

  • The North Atlantic Climate System Integrated Study (ACSIS)

Committee and Board Memberships: 

Co-chair of ICOADS International Steering Committee
