I am an oceanographer who uses physical, chemical, and biogeochemical data from observing systems (e.g., CTD profiles, moorings, gliders, discrete water samples) and models (e.g., AMM7-ERSEM coupled hydrodynamic-ecosystem model, simplified exchange rate models) to describe oceanographic processes from estuaries to open ocean on time-scales from hours to decades in environments which are polar, sub-polar, and mid-latitudinal. I am in particularly interested in shelf-sea coupled biological-physical processes, fjord-shelf exchange in polar environments, and long-term changes in climate,
PEANUTS (Primary productivity driven by increasing vertical nutrient fluxes?)
Funded by NERC’s Changing Arctic Ocean Research Programme, PEANUTS (2018–2021) will quantify the contribution that changes in the vertical flux of nutrients has made to observed increases in primary production in the Arctic over recent decades.
CAMPUS (Combining Autonomous observations and Models for Predicting and Understanding shelf Seas)
CAMPUS is a three year project (2018–2021), funded by the Natural Environment Research Council, combining state-of-the-art computer modelling with innovative observational systems utilising the latest technologies. The project aims to:
