Anne Treasure completed a PhD on invasive species and climate change impacts on the sub-Antarctic Prince Edward Islands. Current research interests include using ecosystem modelling to investigate the impacts of the latitudinal variability of the sub-Antarctic front on marine ecosystems around the Prince Edward Islands.

Dr Allessandro Tagliabue Dr Alessandro Tagliabue obtained a PhD in ocean biogeochemistry in 2006 from Stanford University, USA. He then worked as a post-doctoral scholar at LSCE in Paris, France, until joining SOCCO in November 2010. Alessandro is interesting in better understanding the controls on the growth and primary productivity of phytoplankton
Advisor Prof Frank Shillington and Dr Monteiro
Dr Bjorn Backeberg completed his PhD at UCT and the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Norway under the supervision of Prof C Reason, Prof J. Johannessen and Dr L Bertino at . His main activities include developing an ocean modelling platform for mesoscale modelling of the Agulhas region in support of research and operational activities.

Dr Maya Pfaff did her PhD at UCT in the Dept of Zoology on larval transport and recruitment of intertidal invertebrates under supervision of Prof Branch. Current research interests revolve around understanding mechanisms of physical-biological coupling and their role as drivers of coastal marine ecosystems.

Former posdoc 2011
Dr Nicolas Raclecompleted his PhD on the ocean surface layer and on the coupling of waves and currents in Brest, France. He then worked two years within ACCESS with Pr. George Philander on the large scale salinity distribution and its link to paleoclimates. His focus is now on the air-sea-waves coupling and the high resolution SAR remote sensing of the Agulhas area.

Jennifer Jackson completed her PhD at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. She studied the near-surface waters of the Arctic Ocean and how they changed due to the recent warming and freshening. Dr. Jackson started her postdoc at UCT in 2011 and is studying bio-physical interactions in the Agulhas Current and on the continental shelf.
