I am an oceanographer interested in the key physical processes in the ocean and the role they play in our climate system.  I first became interested in the field of physical oceanography when I was working on near-inertial waves and ocean eddies as a PhD candidate in the Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University.  After I finished my PhD at Dalhousie, I went to IFM-GEOMAR in Kiel, working in the Theory and Modelling group for one year as one of the institute-funded post-doctoral researchers.  I then spent three years in the ocean group at the University of Oxford before I joined the School of Environmental Sciences at UEA as a Lecturer in Ocean Modelling in February 2012.
