I’m a physical oceanographer/climate modeler in the department of ocean sciences at the Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science of University of Miami. My research focuses on identifying the missing links between Agulhas leakage and the Atlantic Meridional Overturning circulation using a High-Resolution coupled climate model. Specifically, I track millions of virtual particles to quantify Agulhas leakage. Coming from a atmospheric science background, I want to combine my experiences in climate modeling, scientific programming and physical oceanography to ask more challenging questions.
Beside research, I am a big fan of any sports with racquets. I play in local tennis leagues, school badminton club and restringing racquets is one of my passions. I relocated to Seattle last summer due to family concern, and am now actively seeking for job positions.

We noticed that Agulhas leakage is indeed higher in the year 2000 CO2 level control runs, but no significant increasing trend in the climate change simulation. It might be due to the equilibrium timescale of westerlies to changing CO2, or an internal bias of our high-res CCSM.
The interannual variability of Agulhas leakage is accessed in an ocean eddy resolving coupled simulation to test the hypothesis that, on such timescales large-scale forcing dominates leakage variability, regardless of eddy structures.
The senstivity of leakage estimates to the model output velocity frequency needs to be addressed before we can apply it to investigate its link to climate variability.
