My research group tries to understand the processes occurring in the ocean that are important for climate.  I am primarily an observational oceanographer, enjoying going on research cruises, but I also like to use numerical models, satellite remote sensing, or whatever tools seem appropriate. At the moment I am enthused by the new opportunities offered by ocean gliders, autonomous robots that can make measurements of the ocean in places that are otherwise too difficult.  This includes trying to understand the ocean-ice interaction in the Antarctic.
