Current Research

Currently, I am working on eddy-induced transport in the Southern Ocean. By parameterising eddies, we can simplify ocean models to help resolve details on the Rossby length scale. However, this can lead to physical inconsistencies with the eddy energy budget. My project focuses on shallow water models (e.g., the Figure shows the water height of a reduced gravity 1.5 layer model based on Adcroft and Marshall 1998) and their potential vorticity closure of the eddy-induced transport.
