Professor and Interim Dean, College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment
I am a professor in Physical Ocean Science and Engineering in the School of Marine Science and Policy at the University of Delaware. I currently serve as the deputy dean for the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment. I received a Ph.D. from Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2000 after obtaining degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mathematics from the University of Bordeaux, France. My research interests revolve around small scale air-sea interactions. Most of my work involves experiments on breaking waves and related phenomena such as the injection of turbulence and bubbles in the water columns and the resulting air-sea gas fluxes; or the ejection of sea spray in the airflow and the resulting air-sea mass, moisture, and heat fluxes.
