With a background in mathematical and computational sciences such as physics, statistics and adaptive systems, Dougal Greer has a fundamental understanding of the principles governing physical oceanic processes. Dougal works primarily in the area of numerical modelling, but he also has a keen interest in statistical and other forms of data analysis.
Dougal has been working as a physical oceanographer for 6 years and more broadly as a research assistant and data analyst for 10 years, and he has worked on a broad range of projects. Areas of specialisation include modelling sediment dynamics; oil, pollutant and nutrient dispersal; larvae dynamics, primary production modelling and analysis and modelling of great tsunami events all of which have been applied at numerous worldwide locations. Working for 6 years at ASR Ltd his breadth of experience has been broad, from project development to field data collection to data analysis and numerical modelling to technical writing.
