Research interests

My principal line of research is using multimedia and other techniques to illustrate key connections with special emphasis on the ocean-climate system.  I am Director of Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE) -Ocean Systems, one of 12 Centers across the U.S.  We have developed an Ocean-Climate Interface and linked tools to create online "concept maps" in a collaborative manner.  I am also the lead developer of education and outreach materials for the NASA Aquarius sea surface salinity mission scheduled to launch in 2010.
