“Diagnosis of oceanographic controls on fish productivity in the South Atlantic Bight”
Areas of Interest
My work, in conjunction with an international network of collaborators, grapples with questions at the frontiers of physics, biology, and chemistry in the oceanic systems. I approach these questions from a multidimensional perspective that includes theory, observation, and modeling. By weaving these three approaches together, my research program is specifically designed to understand the interactions between oceanic circulation, marine ecosystems, and marine pollutants. I rigorously test predictions of the models I use with observations collected in the ocean. This research involves marine instrumentation, advanced computational methods, and visualization tools to address fundamental questions at the interface of oceanography and environmental engineering.
I currently hold a Guest Investigator appointment at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Prior to becoming a faculty member at CUNY, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Miami, and worked at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
