RESEARCH INTERESTSMy principal research interests relate to the global-scale ocean circulation and its influence on regional climate. This involves research projects in the fields of large-scale physical oceanography, ocean modelling, and climate processes, with a particular focus on the Southern Hemisphere. Using ocean and coupled climate models in combination with observations, I study what controls ocean currents and how these currents affect climate and climate variability on time-scales of seasons to centuries. Below is a schematic diagram depicting some of the major highlights and geographic areas of interest in my research programs.
