Pedro is a Chief Oceanographer at CSIR with a special interest in the understanding of how and why the ocean biogeochemistry of oxygen and carbon adjusts to climate variability. The use of numerical modelling as experimental platforms to understand scale sensitivities of coupled physics and biogeochemical processes in the Southern Ocean is a key focus. This is being used to contribute to reducing uncertainty in the long-term evolution of the climate-carbon system in fully coupled Earth Systems models.
