We study the role of ocean and ecological dynamics in the climate system and biosphere through theoretical analysis, numerical modeling, interdisciplinary observations, and community-engaged research. Projecting and mitigating the impacts of climate change requires predictive understanding of the ways that components of the climate system interact across spatial and temporal scales.
Our recent research focuses on topics ranging from submesoscale and mesoscale dynamics, physical-biological coupling between ocean ecosystems and physical transport processes, carbon and nutrient cycles in aquatic environments, and the role of scientific information in environmental justice.
We will be hiring PhD students and postdocs to start in fall 2024. For more information about positions at Brown University, see this page.
