Dr Rob Hall

Rob Hall
After an undergraduate degree in Oceanography at the University of Southampton Rob completed his PhD in Physical Oceanography at Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory (now National Oceanography Centre, Liverpool) and the University of Liverpool, under the supervision of Profs John Huthnance and Ric Williams. He then spent three years as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Hawaii working with Dr Glenn Carter before being appointed Lecturer in Shelf Sea Oceanography at the University of East Anglia.

His research is on shelf sea and shelf edge fluid dynamics, diagnosed from both observations and numerical model simulations. He has specific interests in internal waves and internal tides, their interactions with complex topography such as submarine canyons, and their effect on turbulent mixing, biogeochemical fluxes, and primary productivity.

He has been a member of the Challenger Society for Marine Science since my PhD studies.
