My research uses a combination of sea-going and satellite observations, numerical models and theory to study how variability in ocean circulation, acting over a range of spatial and temporal scales, influences Earth's climate.


Our group's second glider deployment took place in the Atlantic this summer. A link to the cruise blog is here and a link to the data is here.

Our first glider deployment was carried out in the Weddell Sea in January 2012 as part of the GENTOO project.
