Thesis Title: Interhemispheric Asymmetry in Global Warming: The Role of Ocean Heat Transport

Supervisors: Matthew England, Andy Hogg

Profile: David is interested in the ocean's influence on the interhemispheric asymmetry of global warming. He has tested the impact of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current on the asymmetry through ocean gateway experiments, and is currently studying the role of eddy dynamics through a high resolution coupled ocean model. He is also interested in the impact of shifting the southern hemisphere westerly winds, and the role of sea ice melt in setting the asymmetry.
