I am a senior post-doctoral research associate on Prof. Karen Heywood’s “Climate-relevant Ocean Measurements and Processes on the Antarctic continental Shelf and Slope” (COMPASS) grant. This project is focused on short term, high risk observational campaigns around Antarctica, using gliders to gather measurements which would be very difficult to obtain otherwise. My work will focus on two main areas: firstly, the exchange processes transporting properties across the Antarctic slope front, including using gliders equipped with microstructure sensors to measure turbulent mixing between layers across the shelf break; secondly, investigating the variability of heat fluxes and water masses entering and leaving the cavities under ice shelves.
