My current research focuses on mechanisms driving ocean variability in the subpolar North Atlantic revealed by recent observations. This is a key region for global climate and understanding the processes that give rise to this variability has important implications for climate predictability.

I use ocean general circulation models to investigate what governs subpolar overturning and gyre variability by exploring oceanic response to observationally-motivated perturbations in surface and boundary forcing. This work is part of the SNAP-DRAGON project (PI Helen Johnson).

In my previous research, I focused on the ocean surface boundary layer and its interaction with processes of different lengthscales in the atmosphere.
