I am a research oceanographer in the Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences Program at Princeton University, based in the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. I can be reached by phone at 609-452-6582 or by email using the NOAA convention [First.Last] at Researcher ID: E-5995-2010.

Research Interests

My research focuses on turbulent mixing in the ocean, using numerical models to understand the processes involved. An ultimate goal is the parameterization of these processes in large-scale models, and evaluation of the influence of small-scale mixing on large-scale ocean circulation and climate.
