Dr. Emily Lemagie started with the lab in December 2020. She will be working on an NSF CAREER award investigating the relative role of oceanic forcing on estuarine exchange flow. Her background and expertise in estuarine science, river plume dynamics, inner-shelf dynamics, and science communication is an excellent fit for this project. She completed her PhD in Physical Oceanography at Oregon State University in 2018 working with Dr. Jim Lerczak and worked as a postdoctoral scholar at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution with Dr. Anthony Kirincich and Dr. Steve Lentz before joining our group in December 2020.
Welcome to my lab website!
I am a coastal physical oceanographer specializing in estuarine and coastal processes with an interest in interdisciplinary projects that address how physics impacts important biological and chemical processes in the coastal environment. I am an assistant professor at Scripps Institution of Oceanography where I conduct research, teach, and hope to disseminate my research through public outreach and applications to policy.
