Research Interests

  • Wave climate variability in the NE Pacific, western North Atlantic, and circum-Antarctic oceans
  • Microseismic source areas and distribution in relation to wave climate - global
  • Inferences of climate variability from historic seismogram ambient noise studies - global
  • Tide gauge data studies: storm surge, infragravity waves.
  • Coastal impacts of storm surge and storm waves under rising sea levels
  • Ocean bottom ambient noise variability: wave climate associations
  • Dynamical response of ice shelves to ocean gravity wave forcing
  • Regional sea level variability and trends in the North Pacific
