Oceanographer Chris Reason receives NRF A rating

22 June 2016

Professor Chris Reason in the Department of Oceanography is the latest UCT researcher to receive an A rating from the National Research Foundation (NRF). This brings the UCT total up to 39.

“I believe that obtaining an A rating is largely a team effort,” says Reason. “I have been very fortunate in my 17 years at UCT to have been able to work with many excellent postgraduate students as well as with some inspiring local and international collaborators.”

Reason’s main research focus is on climate variability and change in the southern hemisphere and the role of the oceans in driving this change.

“I’m hoping that the research that my students and I undertake will help us to better understand the highly complex and variable physical environment we live in and will assist with developing better models for climate prediction.”
