NERC Independent Research Fellow,
My NERC Independent Research Fellowship is entitled "Isotopic characterisation of nutrient dynamics and UCDW behaviour in the west Antarctic Peninsula sea ice environment". I am examining the nutrient budgets of the west Antarctic Peninsula shelf on an annual basis, as well as the dynamic coupling between the polar marine nitrogen and carbon cycles, their interactions with rapid climate change and sea ice declines underway in this region, and the implications for oceanic uptake of atmospheric carbon dioxide. My Fellowship runs for five years and involves extensive ocean-going fieldwork in the Antarctic.
In addition to my Fellowship work, I am involved in two projects as part of the NERC Changing Arctic Ocean program, which aims to characterise and quantify the changes in marine biological productivity and biogeochemical cycling occurring in response to rapid warming and sea ice losses in the Arctic region.
If you would like more information on any of my research, teaching or other activities, please feel free to contact me using the details above.
