I am a physical oceanographer interested in the role of the ocean in climate. Most of my work has focused on the North Atlantic and Arctic high latitudes using a combination of field work, analysis of existing data, idealized models and theory.

Research Associate II (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Andree joined WHOI in 2009 and is in charge of processing, quality controlling and analysing much of the synoptic and moored data collected by the group (including ADCP, CTD and current meter data). She has a Masters in Geology and Geophysics from Boston College and worked for several years at USGS before joining WHOI.
Postdoctoral Investigator (email@example.com)
Jamie obtained his PhD from Scripps, UCSD, working with Lynne Talley on Subantarctic Mode Waters and started working at WHOI in the fall of 2010. He is studying the oceanic processes which regulate the heat content of the upper ocean in the Southeast Tropical Pacific, a region of extensive stratocumulus formation which climate models typically get wrong. To investigate this region, Jamie is using ARGO, surface drifter, remote sensing, synoptic and moored data. In his spare time, he studies the interannual variability of the subpolar North Atlantic.

Marilena is a PhD student in the MIT/WHOI Joint Program. She comes from Germany where she completed a bachelor degree in Earth and Space Sciences at Jacobs University in Bremen. Her research focuses on katabatic winds blowing off the southeast Greenland ice sheet and their impact on the glaciers, the fjord circulation and sea-ice. To study these winds and their impact she is working on oceanographic data collected from the fjords, local meteorological data, reanalysis data and remote sensing data. She took part in the Sermilik Fjord 2010 expedition.

Joint Program Student (email@example.com)
Becca joined the WHOI/MIT Joint Gradate program after completing a BSc in Physics at Yale University in 2010. Her current research focuses on investigating the circulation in Greenland's glacial fjords and, in particular, the combined glaciological and oceanographic forcings. She participated in the 2011 Sermilik Fjord Expedition.

Guest Student (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Roberta is a graduate student at the Politecnico di Torino, Italy, where she works with Prof. Antonello Provenzale on turbulent, geophysical flows. As part of her PhD work she has worked with F. Straneo, C. Cenedese (WHOI) and P. Heimbach (MIT) on modeling the dynamics of a glacial melt water plume at the ice edge using the MIT General Circulation Model.
Postdoctoral Investigator (email@example.com)
Clark completed his PhD at Dalhousie University in Canada in 2012, working with Dan Kelley on internal waves and turbulence in the St. Lawrence Estuary. He came to WHOI in Fall 2012, where he is investigating the transformation of Atlantic waters in the Lofoten Basin of the Nordic Seas - an important component of the Meridional Overturning Circulation. Using two years of moored data from the Basin - he is examining the water mass transformation process and the effect of eddies. In addition, Clark has been studying waves excited by iceberg calving events in several Greenland fjords and their impact on the fjord circulation.
