I'm an oceanographer at the National Oceanography Centre, interested in biophysical interactions and the biological carbon pump. I use data from underwater gliders as well as other autonomous platforms, remote sensing and shipboard oceanographic data to understand how water column dynamics affects phytoplankton and the consequent carbon export. I use high resolution data from gliders to look at mixed layer depth dynamics and the role it plays in controlling the phytoplankton population. I'm interested in using autonomous platforms to answer ecosystem-wide questions. 

I'm currently working on GOCART (ERC funded), COMICS, CUSTARD and BIARRITZ (NERC funded) projects. Further details can be found on my my personal webpage
