Biography: 

Ariane Verdy is an Assistant Research Oceanographer at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. She has a bachelor's degree in physics engineering from the University of Montreal, Canada, and a PhD in physical oceanography from the MIT-WHOI Joint Program. Her research interests include biogeochemistry, physical-biological interactions, and theoretical ecology. Currently, her work focuses on data assimilation of biogeochemical observations in high-resolution models, with application to the California Current Ecosystem. She is a member of the NASA Carbon Monitoring System science team, and leads an interdisciplinary effort to improve the simulation of air-sea CO2 fluxes in climate models.

Dr. Verdy's role in SOCCOM will be to advise the development of the biogeochemical component of the Southern Ocean data assimilation, evaluate the model-observation consistency, and analyze the solution to obtain estimates of air-sea fluxes, biogeochemical cycling, ocean acidification, and ecosystem productivity.
