I am interested in the climate system and its response to anthropogenic forcing. I focus on the Southern Ocean, a region which is central to global ocean circulation, ocean biogeochemistry and air-sea heat and tracer exchange. Ocean mesoscale eddies are thought to be a determinant in the area. In previous work, I investigated properties and local effects of Southern Ocean eddies based on remote sensing and in-situ data. In my current and future work, I aim to further explore eddy characteristics and impacts on a regional and global scale, based on both, observational data and high resolution model simulations.
