Research Interests
My research focuses on the impact of present and future climate change on physical and biogeochemical processes in the ocean.  By synthesising information from numerical models and 'real-world' measurements this work aims to better understand the role of the ocean as a central component of the Earth System.  I have worked on the evaluation and improvement of Earth System Models as part of the EMBRACE and CRESCENDO projects.  I am currently working on the impacts of climate change on population health.
