University of Washington
I am a Senior Oceanographer in the Polar Science Center at the University of Washington's Applied Physics Laboratory in Seattle. I am a physical oceanographer, specializing in field observations in ice-covered seas. My background is in physics and computer modeling, and I now work mostly with mooring data and ship-based data from the Arctic and sub-Arctic seas.
In this Bering Sea project, I am working with modeler Dr. Jinlun Zhang, using a computer model of ocean and sea-ice to study the changing sea-ice in the Bering Sea, especially the physical causes of change and the implications for this remarkably rich ecosystem. For more details of our project, please see our website.
