Research interests: Limnology, gravity current dynamics, coastal oceanography, biogeochemical responses to physical processes
My contribution to SBC LTER seeks to get a better understanding of the pathways of incoming streams in near-shore environments, with an emphasis on impacts to kelp forest. I am particularly interested in field observations and the characterization of physical processes like mixing between the streams and the ocean water.
