Research Overview

Our group seeks to improve our dynamical understanding of the ocean and its role in Earth's climate, particularly at high latitudes. Problems of interest include the ventilation of the deep ocean, oceanic uptake and transport of heat and carbon, sea ice variability, and glacier-ocean interactions. These processes have far-reaching impacts on our global climate and lie at the intersection of ocean biogeochemistry, glaciology, sea ice dynamics, and atmospheric science.

We approach these problems using a wide array of data sources and analytical methods, ranging from in situ observations to numerical modeling. Our goal is to provide tangible scientific insight that sharpens our understanding of these physical systems and helps constrain past, present, and future climate variability.
