I am an Oceanographer in the
Climate Dynamics and Prediction
Group at the Geophysical Fluids Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL).
My work is centered around development of and investigation with general circulation
models. I was previously a Research Scientist with
and prior to that a UCAR Visiting
Scientist at GFDL.
