Research interests

I am interested in ocean dynamics in polar regions and how they are impacted by changing freshwater fluxes and the cryosphere. I am investigating how changes in this system affect the surface exchange of heat and CO2 in the Southern Ocean. Gaining a robust understanding of this process and the related uncertainties is directly relevant to constraining future global climate change, allowable CO2 emissions for a given temperature target, and related sea level rise.
