- Student at
Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria, U.K., in 1989. The research with John Adamson was directed towards soil acidification by Sitka spruce and Japanese larch.
- M.Sc. in Soil Science at the Agricultural University of Wageningen, The Netherlands, 1991.
In the Department of Microbiology I simulated with Tom Bosma the transport of bacteria in sediment columns with latex-particles.
During a project with Hellenius Rogaar of the Department of Soil Science and Geology I studied the genesis of surprisingly red sandy soils (hematite!) in the temperate Netherlands.
- As a Ph.D. student at the Royal Netherlands
Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) at Texel in the group of Hein de Baar I have studied the processes affecting the air-sea exchange of CO2 in the East and South Atlantic Ocean from 1991 to 1996.
Shipboard measurements of surface-water fCO2 and dissolved inorganic carbon were part of the research.
- A Ph.D. at the Faculty of Mathematics and Science, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, The Netherlands, in 1998 completed my thesis research.
‘Promotores’ were Hein de Baar and Andrew Watson.
- Research Associate in the Laboratoire d’Océanographie Dynamique et de Climatologie (LODYC), Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France, between 1996 and 1998.
With Jacqueline Etcheto and Jacqueline Boutin I worked on the spatial and temporal variability of surface-water fCO2 in the equatorial Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
satellite observations of sea surface temperature,
ocean colour and wind speed were used as tools.
- Senior Research Associate (1998-2005) and Research Officer (since 2006) at the
of Environmental Sciences,
University of East
Anglia, Norwich, U.K.
The role of
iron limitation in Southern Ocean carbon cycling
in the Southern Ocean Iron Release Experiment
(SOIREE) and in EisenEx.
Current research focuses on the effect of
natural iron fertilisation on CO2 air-sea exchange.
One such study
was conducted near
Plateau in the southern Indian Ocean,
as part of the
Research in the context of
CASIX is directed towards
the role of the Southern Ocean as a sink or source for carbon dioxide.
