Personal profile


Professor Nicole Jones is a Physical Oceanographer at the University of Western Australia. She uses a combination of field observations and numerical modelling to study primarily relatively small-scale ocean dynamics, including turbulent mixing, internal waves and ocean eddies. Understanding these processes is vital to quantify the transport of heat, pollutants and nutrients around the ocean.  Nicole has extensive fieldwork and cruise experience and a particular interest in the development of novel field-observation techniques.  

Nicole was an Editor for the Journal of Physical Oceanography from 2018-2022. She represents the Western Australian marine science community by leading the Western Australia node of Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS). Since 2019 Nicole has served on the Research Advisory Committe of the Marine National Facility.

Nicole is passionate about the advancement of STEM women into leadership roles and is involved in both local and national efforts to achieve this.
