I’m a postdoctoral researcher in Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at MIT. I’m currently working with the Climate Modeling Alliance to build the ocean component for a new earth system model. I was a postdoctoral fellow in the NOAA Climate and Global Change program from 2016–2018.

Something I’ve been working on lately is a piece of julia software called OceanTurb.jl for prototyping one-dimensional models of the ocean surface boundary layer. Check out OceanTurb.jl on github.

I study the Earth’s ocean, its physics and motion, and the infinite entanglement of its eddies, currents, waves, and turbulence. My work is motivated by basic questions in fluid dynamics and ocean physics. For example: what sets the density structure of the ocean? I use applied mathematics, computations, and observations to seek reduced models, simplifications, and explanations for complex oceanic phenomena.
