Senior Research Scientist in physical oceanography and numerical modelling.
I am currently the Lead Physical Oceanographer at AIMS, responsible for development and implementation of the scientific vision for physical oceanography, and the delivery of that vision through appropriate Research Team plans.
I was a Program Leader in the AIMS@JCU joint venture for the period 2009-2011 and continue a commitment to postgraduate training through the supervision of PhD students at JCU and UWA.
I lead AIMS involvement in the eReefs project
