My research examines the impacts of climate change and climate variability on life in the ocean and attempts to predict future changes. The key to this challenge is understanding how the physical and biological aspects of marine systems are linked, and thereby understand the changes that we have seen thus far. We combine this knowledge with projections of the future physical environment to make predictions across a range of timescales, from seasonal and decadal scales to climatic scales. We focus on questions that are accessible and tractable, and have therefore worked across many layers of the food web (from plankton to top-predators), species (herring to tuna), geographic regions (from the North Atlantic to the Caspian Sea) and scales (from the global ocean to region seas).
