I'm an applied mathematician and polar oceanographer at Harvard University. I study how Earth's climate, human systems, and ecology are shaped by physics on scales of kilometers and smaller.
In particular I focus on understanding sea ice from the perspective of individual pieces of ice, known as floes, and the consequences for sea ice loss, ocean eddies, and phytoplankton blooms.
- From April-May 2017, I will be visiting Sam Dean and Alison Kohout at NIWA in Wellington, New Zealand to investigate changes to the Antarctic sea ice extent.
- In July, I will be kayaking and instrumenting Kennedy Channel (81N, 66W), between Greenland and Ellesmere Island, as a part of the film Enduring Ice, directed by Stephen Smith.
- I will be joining Baylor Fox-Kemper at the Institute at Brown for Environmental and Society as a Voss fellow for 2017-2019
