Physical oceanographer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory - USA

I am a physical oceanographer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. My primary research interest is the variability and physical processes of the ocean and their relationships with climate variability, weather, and water cycle using satellite data in conjunction with in-situ observations, models, and data assimilation. He is the Lead of NASA’s Ocean Salinity Science Team and funded PI of NASA’s Ocean Vector Wind Science Team and Sea Level Change Science Team. I have been involved with activities of GODAE, GODAE-OceanView, and OceanPredict since 2003, including being the liaisons with the ocean remote sensing community, CLIVAR Global Synthesis and Observations Panel (past role), ECCO (past role), and GCOS/GOOS/WCRP Ocean Observations Panel for Physics and Climate (current role). I am interested in promoting the utility of satellite data and observing system assessments in OceanPredict.
