Edward Doddridge

Ed’s research focuses on improving our understanding of the fundamental dynamics of the ocean, and the ocean’s role in the climate system. He is currently working on the Southern Ocean, examining the interactions between the atmosphere, sea ice, and the ocean.

Gianluca Meneghello

Gianluca is interested in studying dynamics of the ocean and the atmosphere: his current focus is the identification of a simple model to analyze the role of eddies in the response of the Beaufort Gyre to wind and buoyancy forcing. He previously worked on the development of autonomous observational platforms for environmental flows, on control/data assimilation algorithms, and on numerical methods for fluid mechanics.

Ali Ramadhan
Graduate Student

Ali is a physicist using a mix of models and observations to understand Earth’s climate. He is currently working on interactions between sea ice and winds in the Antarctic sea ice zone. Previously, he worked on creating molecular movies and on light-matter interactions in a dark laser laboratory.

Anastasia Romanou
Research Scientist

Anastasia, a collaborator from GISS, is interested in the large-scale circulation of the oceans, gas-exchange through the air-sea interface, the ocean carbon cycle, climate variability, thermohaline circulation and coupled ocean-atmosphere modeling.

Jeffrey Scott
Research Scientist

Jeff is interested in understanding the role of the ocean in global change change, using a hierarchy of ocean-only and coupled earth system models. Recent work has focused on passive heat uptake versus active ocean circulation changes in a warming world.
