Marina Levy

My research interests are the study of the interactions between ocean physics, biogeochemistry, plankton and marine ecosystems, with a particular focus on the role of ocean turbulence, and with the final goal of being able to make better predictions for the future, particularly with regard to the carbone cycle. My primary research tools are regional, bio-physical models which I use and develop to guide my interpretations of satellite and in-situ observations.
