Dhruv Bhagtani

I am a first year PhD student, working in the Climate and Fluid Physics Group, Research School of Earth Sciences. I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India with a BTech (Honours) degree in Ocean Engineering and Naval Architecture in 2020.

Research interests

My supervisors are Prof. Andy Hogg, Dr. Navid Constantinou and Dr. Ryan Holmes. 

My research aims at understanding the mechanisms behind the formation and evolution of subtropical and subpolar gyres in the ocean. Gyres are large-scale circulatory patterns in the world oceans, and are responsible for transporting tracers like heat and carbon dioxide from one part of the ocean to the other. As part of my project, I am also looking at the impact of climate change on these gyres.
