I am a postdoctoral research fellow at Rutgers University. I study small to mesoscale ocean processes such as turbulence, flows over topography, internal waves and eddies. I am interested in the role such processes play in Earth’s climate. My approach combines analysis of high resolution in situ observations with numerical simulations. I practice open science by making analysis and software available online.
