Curriculum vitae

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Physical Oceanography at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. My work uses numerical models, observations, and theory to further our understanding of complex physical phenomena in the world’s oceans.


2016 – presentPostdoctoral Research Associate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, supervised by John Marshall

Focus: Investigating the response of the Southern Ocean and sea ice to changing atmospheric forcings, and the dynamics of the Arctic Ocean.


2012 – 2016Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil), Physical Oceanography, University of Oxford, UK
Influence of eddies on vertical transport and nutrients in subtropical gyres
Supervisor: Professor David Marshall
2011Bachelor of Science with First Class Honours, Applied Mathematics, University of Tasmania, Australia
Chemical Kinetics in a Bi-Palladium Complex
Supervisors: Professor Larry Forbes and Professor Brian Yates
2007 – 2010Bachelor of Science, Mathematics and Physics, University of Tasmania
2008 – 2009Diploma in Languages, German, University of Tasmania
