Personal profile

Research expertise

I am interested in the variability of the oceans on seasonal and longer time scales, the large-scale ocean circulation and how mesoscale features can impact them.

Within the framework of my dissertation, I have worked intensively with different kinds of observational data (vessel mounted, moored, and satellite data) and model output. During four cruises in the tropical Atlantic and Pacific, I gained a thorough education in the collection and processing of shipboard observations.

My current research focuses on the Atlantic Ocean. I investigate the variability of temperature, salinity and biogeochemical components like oxygen and how they are related to changes in the large-scale ocean circulation and climate modes.

I like to share my research and knowledge about the ocean not only within the scientific community, but also with everybody else who is interested by giving talks during public events or moderating them.

Research interests

Current project

iAtlantic - Integrated Assessment of Atlantic Marine Ecosystems in Space and Time:

Funded by a €10.6M grant from the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme, the ambitious iAtlantic project will - for the first time - undertake an ocean-wide approach to understanding the factors that control the distribution, stability and vulnerability of deep-sea ecosystems. Work will span the full scale of the Atlantic basin, from the tip of Argentina in the south to Iceland in the north, and from the east coasts of USA and Brazil to the western margins of Europe and Africa. Central to the project's success is the international collaboration between scientists throughout the Atlantic region, with sharing of expertise, equipment, infrastructure, data and personnel placed at the forefront of iAtlantic's approach.
