Research Group

Kyle Armour

Kyle’s primary research interests are climate dynamics, including sea ice, the general circulation of the atmosphere and oceans, and global climate change. His recent work has focused on Arctic sea ice loss, atmospheric feedbacks and climate sensitivity, and the role of the ocean in setting the timescales and geographic patterns of climate variability and change.

Ute Hausmann

Ute is interested in the roles of the ocean and of
ocean-atmosphere interactions in the climate system.
Most recently, her PhD research addressed the observed
contribution of ocean mesoscale eddies to sea surface
temperature variability and mixed-layer heat transport.

John Marshall
Professor of Oceanography

John is interested in climate and the general circulation of the atmosphere and oceans, which he studies through the development of mathematical and numerical models of key physical and biogeochemical processes. His research has focused on problems of ocean circulation involving interactions between motions on different scales, using theory, laboratory experiments, observations and innovative approaches to global ocean modeling pioneered by his group at MIT. He is Director of MIT’s Climate Modeling Initiative.

Hajoon Song

Hajoon studies climate change and its impacts on marine ecosystem, physical and biological interactions and air-sea interactions. He is also interested in data assimilation of coupled physical-biological oceanic system and adjoint-based sensitivity analysis.
