My research focuses on the large-scale ocean circulation, and its impact on and response to climate change.

MOC at 26N: diagram This includes the meridional overturning circulation, large-scale heat flux dynamics, origin and fate of mesoscale energy, deep convection, biophysical interactions, and subpolar ocean dynamics. My research methods are centred on ocean observations, with an aim to capitalise on synergies between datatypes. This means using two or more datatypes (satellite, in situ hydrography, moorings or autonomous platforms) to gain a better understanding of ocean dynamics than would be possible from a single data source. In the past, this has required pushing the limits of observational methods, including using satellite data to unravel space-time aliasing of glider data, and developing a method to extract profiles of vertical water velocities from glider hydrographic data.
