I am an applied marine physicist interested in the dynamics of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean, particularly in the marginal ice zone of the Beaufort Sea; remote sensing applications to Arctic science; and Arctic sea ice’s connection to the global climate system. I use high-resolution satellite remote sensing and in situ datasets from the ice and ocean to interpret air-ice-sea physical interactions on fine scales (<km) with the goal of aiding in the development and validation of a discrete ice floe model.
Outside of my research in EPS, I have recently begun to serve as Communications Manager for the Yale Postdoctoral Association (YPA), formed of a group of postdocs who serve the Yale postdoctoral community and beyond through advocacy to University adminstration, event sponsorship, and fundraising.
