A warm welcome to incoming postdoc Dr Greg Britten who joins the MIT Darwin Project as part of the Simons Foundation Collaboration on Computational Modeling of the Biogeochemistry of Marine Ecosystems.
Ryan Woosley is a a marine physical chemist, focusing on the marine carbon cycle. A particular interest is in quantifying where and how much anthropogenic carbon is being taken up and stored in the ocean. He is also interested in improving the accuracy and precision of inorganic carbon measurements, specifically pH and total alkalinity. Continue reading
