Personal profile

Research expertise

My research relates principally to processes occuring in arctic waters.  This is focused on the coastal and fjordic waters and is predominantly cross-disciplinary.  The major work in physical oceanography relates to the exchange of waters between the coastal currents, shelf and fjords on seasonal to decadal scales.  There has recently been a resurgence in arctic fjordic oceanography in relation to the impact of warm ocean waters on glacier stability.  I'm working with a number of UK glaciological teams to understand these interactions.  My research also has a strand relating to the vertical motion of zooplankton in relation to physical forcing.  This is uses acoustics techniques and draws on a pan-arctic network of moorings to understand the underlying behaviours that can enhance the vertical flux of carbon.
