I am head of the Open Oceans research group at the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). I am also a fellow of Darwin College, Cambridge and at present I am undertaking a part time secondment to the UK Government's Dept of Energy and Climate Change. My research is focused on gaining a better understanding of the dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans to improve predictions of future climate change. I use a combination of theoretical studies, numerical modelling and analysis of observational data. I regularly give presentations and briefings to stakeholder groups on climate change and sustainability. I am an associate of the Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research and a faculty member for many programmes of the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership.
