I am a physical oceanographer interested in processes at intraseasonal time scales and their roles in shaping primary productivity.  Currently, I am studying variability in the evolution and vertical structure of phytoplankton and biomass at straining regions between mesoscale eddies using biogeochemical Argo floats, remotely sensed data, and Community Earth System Model simulations.  These are regions where balances break down and ageostrophic, submesoscale processes with strong vertical velocities become important.
