Profile

Biography

My research has centred on physical processes in the high latitude North Atlantic Ocean. In particular I am interested in the mechanisms that drive the variability that we observe in the gyre and overturning circulation in the subpolar region (broadly speaking the ocean between Canada, Greenland, Iceland and north-west Europe).

The areas of research that I am working on include year-to-year changes in the amount of heat, freshwater and carbon carried in the subpolar currents, the causes and effects of variability of Arctic freshwater in the subpolar region and the impact of physical variability on ecosystems.
