Dr Callum Shakespeare was awarded his PhD from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge, in 2015. Since that time he has worked at the Australian National University, initially as a postdoctoral fellow before becoming a continuing academic in 2023. Dr Shakespeare currently leads the Climate and Fluid Physics research group and the Climate and Fluid Physics Laboratory at the ANU. Dr Shakespeare’s research spans oceanography, atmospheric science and air-sea interactions, using a combination of mathematical theory, numerical modelling and laboratory experiments. He is particularly well known for his theoretical work on fine-scale ocean processes such as submesoscale eddies, fronts and internal waves. Dr Shakespeare also leads the ANU’s core 2nd year Climate Science course and convenes the ANU Research School of Earth Sciences honours program.
