Research Interests

Broadly, my interests are at the intersection of physical oceanography and biogeochemistry. I use statistical methods paired with models, observations, and theory to understand the transport and fate of tracers like oil, pathogens, and nutrients in the upper and coastal ocean, with emphasis on submesoscales. I also assess climate and regional models to understand how dead zones in the Indian Ocean will be influenced by a changing climate, industry, and land use.
