I am a postdoctoral scholar at the California Institute of Technology, Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences. I am interested in ocean dynamics, ice-ocean interactions, sea ice variability, and high-latitude climate change.
For my PhD thesis, I studied sea ice-ocean interactions around Antarctica, using under-ice ocean data collected by Argo floats and instrumented seals as well as idealized ice-ocean models.
For my postdoctoral research, I am working with Professor Andrew Thompson to assess the impact of polar gyre dynamics on poleward heat transport and Southern Ocean overturning.
The impact of polar gyre dynamics on poleward heat transport and Southern Ocean overturning.
Drivers of recent changes in sea ice extent (SIE) and sea surface temperature (SST) variability in the Southern Ocean
I am currently a science communication fellow at the Seattle Pacific Science Center. I have designed and presented multiple planetarium shows that showcase observational field work in the Southern Ocean.
In 2016, I participated in the six-week long I08S GO SHIP cruise. In coordination with the SOCCOM project, I maintained a regular blog and took questions from a class of six graders at Lakeside Middle School in Seattle.
