Ph.D., Physical Oceanography, MIT/WHOI Joint Program, 2004.
B.S., Atmospheric Sciences, UCLA, 1997.

Research Interests
  • Physical oceanography and climate dynamics.
  • Estimating past ocean circulation and its role in paleoclimate, using physical models and biogeochemical records.
  • Large-scale coupled atmosphere-ocean dynamics, with focus on ENSO.
  • Analysis of climate variability through state estimation, especially the synthesis of general circulation models and observations
