Welcome to my website.
I'm a PhD candidate in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in physical oceanography. This means that I'm jointly affiliated with the Program in Oceans, Atmospheres, and Climate (PAOC) in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science (EAPS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and with the Department of Physical Oceanography (PO) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).
My interests are broadly in understanding the effects of ocean-bottom topography on ocean circulation and climate. My dissertation focuses on how the layer of water closest to the ocean bottom interacts with complicated topography, how this interaction affects the density and circulation of the water throughout the ocean, and how we can observe these interactions in ocean-bottom canyons.
