I am currently a Project Scientist in the Air-Sea Interaction Laboratory at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, part of the University of California San Diego. I study air-sea boundary layer processes by performing theoretical, numerical, laboratory and field studies with the goal of understanding small-scale physical processes that may be used to enhance coupled models of air-sea interaction.
