It’s important that you work on things that you care about …
Don’t be afraid to get involved.
Leonel Romero is an Assistant Professor of Marine Sciences at the University of Connecticut, Avery Point. He received his Ph.D. in Oceanography from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2008.
His research combines field observations and numerical modeling to study air-sea interaction, upper-ocean processes, ocean waves, and coastal processes. His main objectives are to improve understanding of wave-current interactions and their impacts on surface wave breaking, air-sea fluxes, and applications. Other research interests include the transport and dispersion of tracers near the ocean surface and the underlying driving processes such as winds, waves, fronts, eddies, and Langmuir circulation.
