My research and teaching is focused on the prediction of the ocean environment. In my group, this broadly includes: i) physics and biogeochemistry; ii) role of dynamical scales; iii) applications of machine learning in state estimation and prediction; and, iv) ocean observations and their design. These wide-ranging fields speak to my interest in studying the ocean as an interconnected complex system. Ideas within the lab group are shared and debated openly with all discourse free of rigid hierarchies.
