Research interests

I am interested in the interactions between marine ecosystems and biogeochemistry, the carbon cycle and climate. My work involves developing and using representations of ecosystems and biogeochemistry in Earth System Models. I am particularly interested exploring how ecosystems and biogeochemistry interact in the modern ocean and how this may have changed in the past, and the implications for palaeoclimate.

Current and recent research:

  • I am currently employed as a research associate on the ERC-funded PALEOGENiE project, helping develop a trait-based ecosystem model in the Earth System Model 'GENIE' and using this to explore the response of ecosystems to extinction events in the paleaorecord.
  • I am developing the application of transport matrices (a method of diagnosing steady-state ocean transport) to GENIE.
  • My PhD research focussed on constraining our mechanistic understanding of the biological pump in the moden ocean using both novel data analysis and modelling approaches.
