As a physical oceanographer at the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington I study the global patterns and variability of tiny processes that churn and mix both close to and far below the ocean's surface through the use of global datasets and spending time at sea to make measurements on the open ocean.

My journey to the Applied Physics Laboratory included graduate study in physical oceanography at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego.
