Dr. Fernández Castro is a Marie Curie Research Fellow within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.
I do interdisciplinary oceanographic and limnological research, connecting small-scale physical processes with ocean circulation, biogeochemical cycles and plankton dynamics. In my current project, I investigate how ventilation processes in the mixed layers of the Southern Ocean modulate the uptake of atmospheric CO2 in this climatically important region.
