Current Research: (Global Biogeochemistry)

Our group is focusing on the Surface Ocean-Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) that is the investigation of the dynamic processes occurring across the sea surface. The goal is "to achieve quantitative understanding of the key biogeochemical-physical interactions and feedbacks between the ocean and atmosphere, and how this coupled system affects and is affected by climate and environmental change"
