Personal profile

Academic Background

I have a strong interest on the effect of climate change on the physics of the Southern Ocean. Having worked with trends in the properties of the Antarctic Bottom Water both with in situ and model data, my most recent piece of work focuses on an important Antarctic gateway: the presence of the dense water outflow in the western Weddell Sea and its influence on the short-term variability of the Antarctic slope current. I use both traditional oceanographic data and also new observing technologies, such as ocean gliders, to investigate the physics associated with the variability of crucial oceanic regions. Currently I'm using ocean gliders to explore the feedback between the passage of the Coupled Convective Kelvin Waves and the properties and dynamics of the Maritime Continent. This work is part of the project Equatorial Line of Observations (ELO), led by Professor Adrian Matthews.
