Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics and Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences


PhD, MIT-Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2021

I use mathematical modeling and observations to study the role of ocean and ecological dynamics in the climate system and biosphere with the aim of projecting and mitigating the impacts of climate change through a predictive understanding of the ways that components of the climate system interact across spatial and temporal scales. My mathematical modeling research focuses on fluid dynamics, stochastic modeling, and reaction-advection-diffusion equations. I use methods including theoretical analysis, numerical modeling, interdisciplinary observations, and community-engaged research.
