CBIOMES Welcomes Guangpeng Liu

by Helen Hill for CBIOMES

A warm CBIOMES-welcome to Guangpeng Liu who joins the UCSC group to work with Brian Powell.

Liu’s previous research focused on a model predictability study to understand the transport and mixing pathways in the regional ocean system. Specifically, how submesoscale turbulence impacts the dispersal of sinking particles, nutrients, coral larvae, and freshwater.

He is working with Brian Powell at the  University of Hawaii on machine learning applications in oceanography and will develop methods to improve the predictability skills of oceanic biophysical models.

Liu came to the US from China in 2015, receiving his PhD in physical oceanography at Georgia Tech in May 2021.
