My research spans oceanography, climate and biogeochemistry, with an emphasis on numerical models, remote sensing, and data analysis. I am interested in how the global carbon cycle and ocean ecology respond to natural and human-driven climate change signals such as ocean warming, sea-ice loss, and ocean acidification due to the invasion of carbon dioxide from fossil fuel burning.
