This month, we welcome Craig Rye and James Schloss, who join the Marshall and Ferrari groups, respectively, as postdocs and wish goodbye to another cohort of postdocs. 


Craig Rye joins the Marshall group as a postdoc; he’s working remotely from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in NY.

Craig is researching the regional and global response to the polar melt water anomaly. He is additionally working on introducing a representation of Antarctica’s floating ice shelves to the Goddard Institute for Space Studies earth system model.

Craig has a PhD in Ocean Physics from the University of Southampton and a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Sciences from the University of East Anglia.


James Schloss joins the Ferrari group as a postdoc.

During his PhD, he focused on massively parallel implementations of superfluid simulations on graphics processing units and will be using this expertise on largescale climate models for the Climate Modeling Alliance. His focus will be on writing and optimizing discontinuous Galerkin and timestepping methods for modeling the ocean on distributed graphics processing units and high-performance computers using the Julia language.

Schloss has a PhD from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University and a bachelor’s degree in Physics from Auburn University.
