Veronica Tamsitt

Ocean and Climate Scientist


I am an ocean scientist interested in understanding the influence of the Southern Ocean on global climate, using ocean observations, and state-of-the-art ocean and climate models. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Center for Southern Hemisphere Ocean Research based in Hobart (CSHOR), working on the Southern Ocean dynamics, circulation and water mass formation project with Steve Rintoul and Matthew England. As a member of the CSHOR team I am working with high resolution ocean models and novel ocean observations to investigate different aspects of the Southern Ocean circulation. I am passionate about connecting science to the wider world through effective science communication, including data visualisation, public outreach and evidence-based policy.
