Jörn is Assistant Professor for Environmental Science and Engineering in the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences at Caltech. He holds a M.Sc. degree from the University of Hamburg, Germany, and a Ph.D. from the MIT–WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography.
Joe is the Stanback Postdoctoral Scholar in Environment Science and Engineering, and he is working on understanding submesoscale tracer transport by waves and turbulence. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2018.
Anirban is a postdoc in the group working on the large-scale impact of submesoscale turbulence, in a joint project with Dimitris Menemenlis (JPL). He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 2018.
Xiaozhou is a graduate student in the Environmental Science and Engineering program, working in the group on a project investigating the role of canyons and submesoscale instabilities in the water mass transformation in the abyssal ocean.
Ignacio is a graduate student in the Environmental Science and Engineering program, working in the group to understand how fast atmospherically forced waves affect the slow ocean circulation.
Yangcheng is a graduate student in the Environmental Science and Engineering program, working in the group to understand vertical exchange driven by submesoscale baroclinic mixed-layer instabilities.
Bryan is a graduate student in the MIT–WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography and was a visitor to the group in 2017. He is working on turbulence in bottom boundary layers on slopes.
Weiguang (Roger) Wu
Roger is an undergraduate student at UCSD and worked in the group as a SURF student in 2018. He analyzed existing altimetry and in situ data to better understand what to expect from the upcoming SWOT mission.
