I am a research scientist at the Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) and the Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Sciences (ACEAS) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

My work resolves around the oceans' role in the climate system, how oceans had been affected by ice sheets, carbon dioxide and solar radiation in the past and what we can learn from that to inform the future of the oceans. To achieve this I perform simulations with global climate Recently, I've been focusing on the ocean's response to ice sheet melting and how it impacts global and regional climate.

I have a wide range of research interest including:

  • Oceanic and atmospheric teleconnections between tropical and polar regions
  • Factors affecting High Latitude Southern Hemisphere Climate
  • The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC)
  • Modes of climate variability. In particular, the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO)
  • The impact of high latitudes changes on tropical rainfall
