Projects per year
I am a physical data scientist; I objectively calculate odds, identify patterns and detect anomalies in large, complex datasets. I collect observational data and develop numerical models and have a special interest in model-data comparison and assessing and communicating uncertainty.
My current research at SAMS applies a combined model-data approach to observational physical oceanography data and high resolution, non-hydrostatic numerical ocean models to better understand small-scale ocean physics. This understanding is then used to optimise marine industries, such as aquaculture, and ensure sustainable use of our oceans.
My past research has involved fieldwork in both the Arctic and Antarctic and used coupled climate models to better understand how the high latitude climate system has varied in the past and how it may vary in future.
I have experience as a data science consultant, specifically using machine learning and data visualisation to extract the full potential and hidden insights from client datasets.
