Dr. Balaji Senapati

Postdoctoral Research Scientist


I've recently become part of the Met department, serving as a postdoc under the guidance of Dr. Christopher O'Reilly. My current research delves into the intricate dynamics of Atlantic Multidecadal Variability and its consequential teleconnections using pacemaker experiments.

My academic journey encompasses doctoral studies in large-scale physical oceanography at esteemed institutions: the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur and APL, JAMSTEC. Throughout my tenure, I explored Sea Surface Temperature variability and large-scale circulation in the subtropical Southern Hemisphere, employing observational data, Satellite products, Reanalysis products, and Numerical Modelling. My PhD thesis unveiled a new wave within the globe's ocean-atmosphere coupled system in the subtropical Southern Hemisphere.

Research Interest:

  1. Climate dynamics and modelling
  2. Teleconnection
  3. Antarctic Sea Ice Variability
  4. Marine Heat Waves and Cool Spells
