Surface waves and the accompanying generation of turbulence and vortical structures play an integral role in coupling the atmosphere and the ocean. These small-scale processes largely influence the air-sea exchanges of mass, momentum, and energy. Understanding the effects of surface waves on the air-sea fluxes is essential in developing physically based parameterizations for improved weather and climate predictions, particularly in high winds and extreme conditions. I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Air-Sea Interaction Laboratory of the University of Delaware, performing fundamental research in the physics of ocean waves and studying how they influence the transfers of momentum and energy between the atmosphere and the ocean.
