Physical Oceanographer

About me:

I earned my Ph.D. at the University of Toronto, focusing on the formation of ocean thermohaline staircases. Now, as a postdoc at MIT, I'm working on wave structure and mixing in ocean submarine canyons as part of the Boundary Layer Turbulence (BLT) Project. 

My research centers on using theoretical models and numerical simulations to study ocean processes like stratified turbulence and internal gravity waves.
