Baylor Fox-Kemper

Baylor Fox-Kemper (CV)

In January, 2013, I joined what is now the Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences at Brown University. I work mostly within the Climate and Environment Group. I am also a fellow of the Institute at Brown for Environment & Society (IBES) and collaborate with the Fluids at Brown program.

From 2007-2012, I was a fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences and an assistant professor at the University of Colorado Boulder. I taught in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and was an affiliate of the Department of Applied Mathematics. Before Boulder, I worked with Raffaele Ferrari at MIT and Geoff Vallis at Princeton and GFDL. My Ph.D. is from the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography working with Paola Rizzoli (at MIT) and Joe Pedlosky (at WHOI). In my pre-oceanographic career, I trained in physics at Reed with Nick Wheeler and at Brandeis with X.-J. Wang.

Researchers and Visitors

Postdoctoral Researcher Advice

Chris Horvat

Chris Horvat

Chris a postdoctoral researcher who received his Ph.D. from the Harvard University's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, where he worked with Eli Tziperman. After some adventures in the Arctic and New Zealand, he will join the group in January as a NOAA C&GC Postdoc. Chris is working on parameterizations for polar oceans and the dynamics of the ice-ocean-atmosphere polar seas.

Leah Johnson

Leah Johnson

Leah is a postdoctoral researcher who received her Ph.D. from the University of Washington working with Craig Lee and Eric D'Asaro. Leah's experience working with ocean observations in a quantitative, scaling model-based framework will be handy as she works on our ONR MISO-BoB project.

Brodie Pearson

Brodie Pearson

Brodie is a postdoctoral researcher who just received his Ph.D. from the University of Reading's Dept. of Meteorology and Boundary Layer Group, where he worked with Stephen Belcher and Alan Grant. He worked on subgrid closures for mesoscale-permitting ocean models, i.e., Mesoscale Ocean Large Eddy Simulations (MOLES) from January, 2015 to Summer 2017. He is now working on using structure functions to quantify the comparison between high-resolution ocean models and observations.

Graduate Students

Graduate Student Research Advice

Abigail Bodner

Abigail Bodner

Abigail joined the group in Fall 2015. Before coming to Brown, she was a student in earth sciences, mathematics, and atmospheric sciences at Tel Aviv University where she worked with Nili Harnik and Eyal Heifetz.

Anson Cheung

Anson Cheung

Anson is a DEEPS Ph.D. student working with our group together with Tim Herbert. Anson is interested in Pacific paleoceanography, especially using biomarkers in sediment cores to reconstruct decadal to centennial climate variability. He has also been working with satellite data to better understand the patterns and correlated variability of the SST, chlorophyll, and winds near Baja, California.

Jenna Pearson

Jenna Pearson

Jenna joined the group in Fall 2015. Before that, she was a student at Northeastern Illinois Unviersity, where she earned a double bachelor's degree in applied mathematics and earth science. She has done research in mantle dynamics (with NEIU faculty), epidemiology (with A. Price), and traffic flow (with B. Sandstede).

Aakash Sane

Aakash Sane

Aakash joined the group in September, 2017, after receiving his master's degree working with Shreyas Mandre in Brown Engineering. Aakash is continuing on to a PhD in fluids engineering by working in our group, particularly by improving parameterizations in ROMS.

Joseph Skitka

Joseph Skitka

Joe is a physics Ph.D. student working with Brad Marston. Joe studies computational fluid dynamics through both PDE-based and statistical methods.

Undergraduate Researchers and Teaching Fellows

Undergraduate Student Research Advice

Jacinta Clay

Jacinta Clay

Jacinta is a geophysics student who is interested in polar processes. She did an oceanographic internship at Texas A&M with Kyeong Park in Summer 2018 and will be doing a thesis in the group in 2018-2019.

John Nicklas

John Nicklas

John is a PLME student who is interested in research on avoiding the worst aspects of climate change. He is working on a geoengineering climate modeling project, and has a patent in green tech.

Liam Carpenter

Liam Carpenter-Urquhart

Liam is a physics student who became interested in collaborating with the group in September, 2016. He was a research assistant in Summer, 2017.

Patrick Orenstein

Patrick Orenstein

Patrick, a DEEPS student, expressed an interest in getting more into oceanography in January of 2016, and he then went to the semester at WHOI program in Fall, 2016. Since then, he has begun collaborating as a group member, and was a research assistant in Summer, 2017.
