I’m a Research Fellow in the Polar Gliders research group at the University of Gothenburg. I’m currently working on two European Commission funded projects: Southern Ocean including Submesoscale Processes In a Changing Environment (SPICE) and the Southern Ocean Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate (SO-CHIC) projects investigating the role of small scale ocean processes on the air-sea flux of heat and carbon in the Southern Ocean.

Current positions:
Marie Skłodowska Curie Research Fellow, University of Gothenburg
SOOS Southern Ocean Flux Working Group co-chair
Observing Air-Sea Observations Strategy (OASIS) Working Group


Research interests: mixed layer dynamics; upper ocean and submesoscale processes; air-sea heat, freshwater & carbon fluxes; autonomous ocean robotics; sea ice processes; idealized numerical modeling.
