About Me

I am a PhD student studying Oceanography at the University of Washington (UW) under the joint supervision of Luc Rainville and Jim Thomson. I started at UW in 2017 after completing a Master’s of Applied Science Degree (MASc) at the University of British Columbia. My master’s degree was awarded by the department of Civil Engineering in the Environmental Fluid Mechanics discipline group, where I worked under the supervision of Bernard Laval and studied standing wave structures in lakes. In May, 2019 I completed the requirements for a Master’s of Science (MS; non-thesis) at UW based on a observational study of submesoscale frontal processes in the western Arctic marginal ice zone.

My interest and current focus is on small-scale processes and mixing in the upper ocean; more information can be found on my Research page.
