About me

Research

I am an associate professor in physical  modern- and paleooceanography. My research is focussed around the dynamics of the large scale ocean circulation and its interaction with climate, now and in the past. Current research interests include the onset of North Atlantic Deep Water formation at the Eocene-Oligocene transition 34 million years ago, interaction between polar deep water formation regions during the Quaternary; deglaciation dynamics of the Southern Ocean upwelling regions; the dynamics of the inflows and outflows through the Arctic Straits, now and in the past; and the role of convection in the meridional overturning circulation. I address these problems using theory and models of various complexity and through collaboration with observationalists and paleoceanographers.
