Fields of interest: 

My research is directed at the ocean's stratification, circulation and mixing and its role in Earth's climate system.

I am a field-going physical oceanographer, an observationalist. My research is directed at the ocean's stratification, circulation and mixing and its role in Earth's climate system. I study the transfer of heat and freshwater within the ocean and between the ocean, cryosphere and atmosphere. I view the ocean as a global system, with specific attention to interocean exchange and to ventilation of the deep ocean interior through sea-air-ice interaction. Comparison and extension of observational data with model results are an increasingly important part of my research. Historically much of my research deals with the Southern Ocean and South Atlantic, but research within the warmer waters of the Maritime Continent and Indian Ocean now compose most of my research program. Recently my focus is on the role of the ocean mesoscale in the transfer of heat and freshwater to compensate for net sea-air flux. I tend to go to areas that have been neglected by the research community, but have the potential of being key players in the global system.

Fields of interest: 

Volcanology, Igneous Petrology, Geochemistry

I have broad interests in the fields of volcanism, magmatism, and tectonics. My work in these fields covers several topics that largely fit into two areas. First, I examine the P-T-X-t path of magmas prior to eruption, which I approach using solubility barometers, crystal-melt thermometers, and diffusion chronometers. Second, I investigate the origin and role of volatiles in magmatic systems. My favorite tool is melt inclusions, which provide a unique means for directly measuring the pre-eruptive volatile contents of mama. Central to my work is the chemical and textural analysis of macrocrysts, at both the individual crystal and population scales, and integrating my results with those of other disciplines (e.g., seismology, remote sensing).

My interdisciplinary graduate research project addresses the impacts of regional climate change on planktonic microorganisms in coastal marine ecosystems. Using integrated laboratory experiments and field studies, I examine the coupled biological and chemical changes in marine ecosystems as a result of increased anthropogenic climate change. Much of my research focuses on the interactive effects of ocean acidification and other chemical stressors on the growth and physiology of planktonic organisms. I also measure dissolved thorium isotopes in seawater to determine fluxes of atmospheric dust – a major source of iron for phytoplankton – in surface waters of the Indian Ocean.

The main goals of my research are to better understand:

  • the ways in which the composition, physical structure, and phenology of Arctic vegetation are changing in response to climate change (Project websites: NASA: Forest-Tundra Ecotone, and, NASA: LiDAR and tundra shrubs)

  •  how these changes impact resident and migratory animals and in turn how animals mediate climate-induced change in the region (Project websites: NSF: TeamBird,  NASA: Animals on the Move, and NSF: TeamVole)

  • how near and remote-sensing techniques can be used to study dynamics in ecological form and function (see above projects)
