Joint Program Student
Femke got her Ph.D. in physical oceanography in 2010 from the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) and Utrecht University in the Netherlands. After a short postdoc at the NIOZ she came to WHOI in 2011 as a postdoctoral scholar. Her research area is the Subpolar Gyre and she is interested in processes such as deep convection, water mass formation, sea-air exchange, overflows and boundary current exchange through mesoscale features. She very much enjoys going to sea to get the observations that will keep her and her colleagues occupied throughout the rest of the year.
