Research interests

My research interests centre on physical processes governing the ocean and climate, and I'm a member of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. Some interesting research includes:

The Southern Ocean

The Southern Ocean is home to the world's strongest ocean current and the strongest winds. It acts to insulate Antarctica from the tropical oceans, is a point of convergence for other major ocean basins and plays a pivotal role in the natural carbon cycle. Read More ...


Ocean Eddies:

Ocean eddies are small scale (10-100km) vortices which occur in all regions of the ocean. Despite their small size, they can have significant impacts on large scale ocean circulation - and climate. In the near future, global ocean/climate models will be able to resolve eddies, posing new problems for ocean modellers. More coming soon ...

Energy and Mixing in the Ocean:

The ocean circulation is constrained by the sources and sinks of energy. Sources of energy include input of energy from winds, tidal stresses at the ocean and bottom and heating/cooling at the surface, while energy is lost via ocean turbulence and mixing. Understanding the ocean energy budget, using theory, laboratory experiments and numerical models, helps to constrain the ocean's response to changes in climate.
