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.
Dr. Elizabeth Brasseale joined our lab in late September 2020. She will be working on a US Coastal Research Program (USCRP) project examining pollution transport including improving predictions in the Southern California region and beyond. She recently finished her PhD at the University of Washington working with Parker MacCready on estuarine-shelf interactions and larval transport of marine invasive species in the Pacific Northwest.
