Other Positions:


Research Theme:

Digital Technologies - Inventing new algorithms, digital techniques, and technologies

Key Interests:

Atmospheric Science, Climate, Science Science Education, Ocean Sciences


PhD, Physical Oceanography, MIT-Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Research Focus

I study the ocean’s overturning circulation, meridional heat transport, and heat uptake. The effect of global warming is delayed by the thermal inertia of the ocean, so understanding how surface warming is absorbed by the ocean is an important part of interpreting climate change and estimating future effects.
