I am a principal scientist at the National Oceanography Centre. I lead the Coastal Ocean Processes team and I am Associate Head for Marine Physics and Ocean Climate. I am a coastal scientist working at the intersection between physical oceanography, physical geography, and coastal engineering. I have broad interests in coastal, estuarine and shelf seas dynamics, in particular in relation to sediment transport, turbulence and mixing, coastal hazards, and land-ocean transfer processes. My work primarily involves observational and modelling process studies. The overall scientific challenge is to understand how the balance of operative processes control the behaviour and evolution of coastal seas and estuaries. One outcome is to improve integrated predictive systems for coastal and shelf seas under climate and anthropogenic changes.
