Jhett Bordwell during a hike at Sobo Peak


I study the dynamics and transport properties of the atmospheres of brown dwarfs and Jovian planets. I specifically consider the effects of local atmospheric dynamics upon the distribution of different chemical species that are subject to quenching effects. I perform my research using the open source pseudospectral framework Dedalus and various supercomputing resources.
