I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol. My background is in Earth science with Climatology, Meteorology and Biology. I'm interested in how the physical environment influences marine biological systems on the large scale, e.g. the link between climate, ocean circulation and marine biogeography. My current research involves modelling the dispersal of coral larvae and jellyfish by ocean currents, and how this may alter with climate change. I'm part of the small but perfectly formed Coral Reef Research at Bristol group (CRaB), under the University of Bristol's Cabot Institute.
Our latest paper, published in Nature Communications, suggests that vulnerable coral populations in the eastern tropical Pacific have been completely isolated from the rest of the Pacific Ocean for at least the past two decades. Read more here.
