Research

After my undergraduate in Ocean Science at Bangor University and an MSc degree in Climate Sciences at the University of Bern in Switzerland, I completed my PhD at Bangor University under supervision of Dr Mattias Green and Prof James Scourse. I then spent two years as a PostDoc at Oregon State University collaborating with Prof Andreas Schmittner before moving back to Bangor University to work on two international EU projects, BlueFish and COCKLES.

My research to date has looked at long-term changes in the tides due to variations in sea-level and climate and has focussed on the impacts of tidal changes on the large-scale ocean circulation during the Last Glacial Maximum. Currently, I am investigating larval transport patterns, which are also heavily influenced by the tide, their interannual variability and the implications of connections between different shellfish habitats on their resilience to future climate change.
