Address: Marine Scotland, Marine Laboratory, 375 Victoria Road, Aberdeen,    AB11 9DB, Scotland, UK

Research Interests

I am interested in coastal and inshore oceanography, observational and dynamical physical oceanography, aquaculture issues especially related to circulation and fjord oceanography, as well as high latitudes with a focus on fluxes from the Arctic to the North Atlantic Ocean.


I collaborate with scientists across the UK, Europe, USA, Canada and Chile.  I collaborate with the University of Aberdeen where I am an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Biological Sciences. Through my PhD work I am still collaborating with international colleagues on Arctic freshwater fluxes.

External Committees and Responsibilities

I have been a reviewer for peer-reviewed journals and proposals for the US National Science Foundation. I guest lecture to MSc students at the University of Aberdeen. I am also a STEM Ambassador and am involved in Science Grrls in Aberdeen.
