Marine-Ecological Climate Change and Climate Services

My research examines how climate change and climate variability impact life in
the ocean
, from plankton to fish. I use understanding gained from the analysis of observations
and theory to i) develop marine ecological climate services and predict changes in the near-term and  ii) toproject changes on long-term time-scales to assess the vulnerability of human communities that rely on the marine environment.

Research areas

My research examines the impacts of climate change and climate variability on
life in the ocean and attempts to predict future changes. The key to this
challenge is elucidating how the physical and biological aspects of marine
systems are linked, and thereby understand the changes that we have seen thus
far. I combine this knowledge with projections of the future physical
environment to make predictions across a range of timescales, from seasonal
and decadal scales to climatic scales.
