Research Statement

I am a physical oceanographer interested in the physics and statistics of coastal and regional sea level variability and change.  My research makes combined use of instrumental observations, proxy records, numerical simulations, and theoretical models.  Recently, I have been working to understand how coastal sea level is influenced by large-scale ocean circulation, and to reconstruct the history of coastal sea level change over the recent past using advanced probabilistic techniques.
