About this person
I got my PhD at University of Miami, Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science in the Meteorology & Physical Oceanography Department.
I am interested in small scale mixing in the ocean and its representation in large scale climate models.
My main focus areas include gravity currents, exchange flows and deep convection.
I use climate models for developing parameterization, hypothesis testing, and high resolution numerical simulations for idealized process studies.
