About me

Hi, I am a first-year Postdoctoral Associate in Physical Oceanography & Ocean Modeling group at Rutgers University under the supervision of Dr. Wilkin at the Rutgers University.

I am working on design, development, and evaluation of a prototype East Coast Community Ocean Forecast System (ECCOFS) that implements data assimilation of real-time observations in a ROMS model of the western North Atlantic Ocean and U.S. coastal and shelf waters. As part of the project, I am creating and automatizing python codes in the AWS to pre-process ROMS files.

My previous works range from model development to running mesoscale simulations for the Equatorial Atlantic region, focusing on the Amazon River plume.

I am also interested in the biogeochemical and physical interactions in high-drag environments and climate change scenarios.
