Ocean and Climate Physics
How does the ocean work? How does it interact with the climate system? After six years in graduate school, I have more questions than answers! Some of my most rewarding work as an oceanographer has been at sea. I’ve spent about 200 days at sea, on research cruises that traversed the Pacific, Indian, and Southern Oceans. I blogged about the last two as Ms. T at Sea: http://mstsea.blogspot.com/.
I love to be a tour guide and introduce people to the weird and wonderful workings of our earth. I do that as a physics professor at Marymount Manhattan College, and at a whole bunch of less formal venues: parties, fundraisers, art galleries, festivals, that one floating platform out in the Rockaways, and my beloved Mermaid Lagoon. My newest venue is also one of my favorite places in the world: the Museum of Natural History.
I’m a tribal fusion bellydancer and a fire dancer. I am happiest when I find ways to combine science and art.
