WELCOME!

Are you ready for a wild ride to the Southern Ocean? I am focused on air-sea gas exchange processes with an emphasis on the Southern Ocean where the air-sea gradient of carbon dioxide (CO2) is large, the system is (seasonally) biologically active, and strong winds coupled with large fetch create extreme wind and wave conditions-- perfect for any science adventure!

I am a Research Assistant with Dr. Matthew Oliver in the Ocean Exploration, Remote Sensing, and Biogeography Lab (ORB Lab) and Dr. Fabrice Veron in the Air-Sea Interaction Laboratory (ASI Lab) while pursuing a Ph.D. in Marine Studies/Physical Ocean Science and Engineering in the School of Marine Science and Policy at the University of Delaware.

Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to hearing from you!

 

WHAT'S NEWS?

JUN 01 2013 - SOLAS SUMMER SCHOOL!

I have been selected to attend the 6th International Surface Ocean-Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) Summer School at Xiamen University in Xiamen, China. The thirteen day school will cover cross disiplinary skills and topics in the field air-sea interactions through lectures and practical workshops given by the worlds leading experts. I will be one of about 70 graduate students selected from around the world. For more information on the SOLAS Summer School, click here.

 

MAY 06 2013 - CEOE SYMPOSIUM

I presented oral and poster presentations at the UD College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment Graduate Student Symposum in Lewes, DE. The oral presentation highlighted collaborative work on the MUSTACHE Project, while the poster presentation focused on modeling air-sea gas fluxes. The picture to the right shows all the participants from UD, and beyond. For more information on my research, click here.

 

JAN 01 2013 - KEEPING A FLOAT

I am teaming-up with Dr. Matt Oliver and researchers in the UD Ocean Exploration, Remote Sensing, and Biogeography Lab (ORB Lab) to further quantifying the dependence of upper ocean stability on chlorophyll distributions and export production, with an emphasis on the Southern Ocean.

In December 2012 an APEX float (pictured to the right) was delpoyed in the Southern Ocean between the tip of South American and Antarctic.   This particular float has a full suite of oxygen and biomass sensors, making it the second of its kind in the Southern Ocean.

Check out the full UDaily article and more about my research.
