Associate Professor Andy Hogg completed his undergraduate degree in physics at the Australian National University in 1996 and was awarded his PhD in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics from the University of Western Australia in 2002. He then spent three years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Southampton Oceanography Centre, where he developed a new, high-resolution coupled ocean-atmosphere model. In 2004 he returned to ANU to take up a position as ARC Postdoctoral Fellow. He is currently based at ANU’s Research School of Earth Sciences, and holds an ARC Future Fellowship.
A/Prof Hogg’s research interests centre on physical processes governing the ocean and climate. His work within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science will be focused on the role of the ocean in altering the variance of modes of climate variability and the ocean’s response to changes in the major climate modes. He will investigate the physical changes in Southern Ocean water mass formation and the role of eddies and mixing in the climate system.
Due to A/Prof Hogg’s unique contributions to understanding of the Southern Ocean, he was awarded the Frederick White Prize from the Australian Academy of Science in 2012, the Nicholas P. Fofonoff Award from the American Meteorological Society and the AMOS Priestly Award in 2015. A/Prof Hogg’s publication record includes 68 scientific research papers and exhibits a flair for new and innovative research.
