Profile

Biography

I am a physical oceanographer interested in understanding the variability of the ocean circulation (transport of heat/salt/mass by ocean currents, dynamics of dense water formation) and how it impacts the European and global climate. I am particularly using in situ observations (e.g. mooring, glider, CTD cruise), satellite data and model outputs.

At NOC, I am involved in the Overturning in the Subpolar North Atlantic Programme (UK-OSNAP). Recently, I used gliders to quantify the circulation and transport associated with the different branches of the North Atlantic Current (eastward extension of the Gulf Stream) in the Subpolar Gyre.

I have participated in 11 oceanographic cruises in the North Atlantic and in the Mediterranean Sea.
