I am currently working as a final year PhD student at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, in conjunction with the Institute of Complex Systems Simulation, Southampton.

My PhD project is focussed upon how the mean strength of the meridional overturning circulation (MOC) responds to variability in the climate system. Analysis of the energetics of ocean circulation (kinetic energy and gravitational potential energy) will complement this, with the aim of interpreting changes in circulation in terms of changes in the sources and sinks of energy.

This work is being supervised by Kevin Oliver, Joël Hirschi and Neil Wells at NOCS and funded by NERC.

Prior to joining the ICSS I studied at Exeter College, University of Oxford for my undergraduate MMath Master of Mathematics degree.
