Postdoctoral Researcher | Paleoceanography

I am a Paleoceanographer interested in the interaction between ocean processes and climate conditions on a range of timescales. I have an MSci from the University of Southampton in Oceanography from the University of Southampton (UK) and recently completed PhD in Paleoceanography at Cardiff University (UK). My PhD work focused on Pliocene to Pleistocene hydrographic reconstructions in the Agulhas Current region, south of Africa. I’m actively involved in research topics ranging from high to low latitude climate connections during the Pliocene and Pleistocene; Ice-Rafted Debris and iceberg trajectory modeling to reconstruct past iceberg dynamics; reconstructing surface hydrography and deep ocean flow dynamics using geochemical and grain-size proxies from sediment cores; and the application of time series analysis and model-data comparison approaches. During my time at Rutgers I will be working with Prof. Liz Sikes on the CROCCA-2s project, exploring ocean circulation in the Southeast Indian Ocean over the last glacial cycle. Outside of work I enjoy trail running, football (the British type!), and cycling.
