I am currently in the third year of my PhD at BAS, working with Andrew Meijers, Paul Holland and Alberto Naveira Garabato (University of Southampton). My research focuses on the variability of water masses in the Southern Ocean, particularly Subantarctic Mode Water and Antarctic Intermediate Water. I compute mixed layer heat and salt budgets in various ocean models to investigate how changes in the amount of sea ice, and the strength of the winds around Antarctica influence the temperature and salinity of the surface waters that ultimately form these water masses.
I previously completed a Masters of Ocean Sciences at the University of Liverpool, where my research project involved investigating variability in the Ross Sea carbon sink. I also completed a year-long internship at the National Oceanography Centre in Liverpool, analysing the levels of suspended particulate matter in Liverpool Bay.
