Postdoctoral Researchers
Postdoctoral Researcher | Physical Oceanography

Jesse is a postdoc with a fellowship from Rutger’s Institute for Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Sciences. He studies small to mesoscale ocean processes such as turbulence, flows over topography, internal waves and eddies, with a focus on their role in the climate system. At Rutgers, he is investigating high-frequency ocean dynamics and internal waves near the terminus of LeConte Glacier, Alaska.  His approach combines analysis of high resolution in situ observations with numerical simulations. He practices open science by making analysis and software available online. He received his PhD from the University of Southampton and previously worked as a postdoc in the Multiscale Ocean Dynamics group at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
