Hi, I’m a Research Fellow in the Polar Gliders research group at the University of Gothenburg. I’m interested in the effects of mid-latitude cyclones (storms) and small scale ocean eddies on the air-sea exchange of heat and carbon dioxide in the Southern Ocean.

I’m currently working in the Southern Ocean including Submesoscale Processes In a Changing Environment (SPICE), Robotic Observations and Modelling of the Marginal Ice Zone (ROAM-MIZ), and the Southern Ocean Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate (SO-CHIC) projects.

This December I will be joining the SO-CHIC Antarctic field campaign where I will be deploying several ocean gliders in the Weddell Sea.


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