Dr. Anna Lowe joined OOMG’s AI2ES program at NC State in February 2021 as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar with AI2ES co-PI Dr. Ruoying He. She completed her Ph.D. at the University of California Santa Cruz under advisor Chris Edwards, exploring connectivity of nearshore rockfish species on the central California coast and relevant circulation. Dr. Lowe’s experience with telescoping-nested modeling applications of ROMS and Lagrangian particle trajectories using OpenDrift can lead to AI/ML applications in marine science.
Dr. Lowe stated “AI/ML is a powerful tool to study our coastal oceans and solve environmental problems in the future… specifically, to investigate ocean eddies and HABs.”
Welcome to the project, Dr. Lowe!
