Brandon Allen
Postdoctoral Associate

Brandon Allen has a PhD in elementary particle physics and a growing interest in climate science. As part of the CliMa project, he is implementing discontinuous Galerkin methods to improve modeling of the ocean, exploiting the latest advances in high performance computing hardware using the Julia programming language.

Gianluca Meneghello
Postdoc

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.

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.
