Physical Oceanography

I'm an ecosystem and biogeochemical modeler, with a particular interest in plankton ecology, and a background in coastal and estuarine physical oceanography. As of 2015 I'm based at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland (come visit!) but I continue to work with the UW Coastal Modeling Group and other colleagues at UW. My organizing questions: first, given that climate change can push on a marine ecosystem by a dozen separate pathways simultaneously, which pathways are the crucial ones? Second, what is the role of biological complexity (diversity, adaptability, behavior, life history) in large-scale patterns in the ocean?

My main research page is here.
