I'm a fifth year PhD student broadly interested in nonlinear dynamics and particularly turbulence. I'm fascinated by the unexpected critical behavior in turbulent systems undergoing a regime change, such as the behavior of three-dimensional turbulence as rotation is gradually increased or ionized plasmas as the magnetic field strength is increased. I am currently working under Glenn R. Flierl on the turbulent dynamics of gas giant planet atmospheres, particularly interested in the transition region between the deep, ionized interior and outer, neutral region. The other half of my PhD is spent looking at sediment transport statistics and modelling in idealized settings. Work done under the supervision of J. Taylor Perron.
