Biography

Erik is an oceanographer, investigating the time scales and pathways of the global ocean circulation. His research focusses on how currents and eddies in the ocean transport heat and nutrients, as well as marine organisms and plastics between different regions of the ocean. He uses both data from ocean observations as well as from computer simulations of the ocean to understand how different regions of the ocean are connected.

Erik received his PhD in physical oceanography at Utrecht University (The Netherlands) in 2009. He then worked for two years as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Miami in the USA. Since 2011, he is at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. He is an Associate Investigator of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. In 2013, the ARC awarded him a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA), which allowed him to start building his own group within the Climate Change Research Centre at UNSW.
