Dr Stephanie Henson is Honorary Associate Professor within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.
I lead an active research group in global biogeochemical oceanography, currently made up of 1 post-doctoral researcher and 4 PhD students. During my research career, I have made contributions to the understanding of the physical processes that alter phytoplankton populations and subsequent impacts on the biological carbon pump. I am also developing my research profile in the field of detection of climate change-driven trends in ocean productivity. My research exploits satellite and in situ data, as well as output from biogeochemical models, and so involves collaboration with a large network of international colleagues. In 2012, I received the EGU’s Arne Richter Award for Outstanding Young Scientist for my ‘fundamental contribution to the study of marine ecosystems’.
