Abigail's interests span a broad range of problems involving climate dynamics, geophysical fluid dynamics and turbulence. She primarily uses theory and models to study the non-linear interaction between small scale processes and larger scale dynamics.Her PhD is focused on ocean fronts- the interface between waters of different temperature, salinity or density- which play an important role in contributing to upper ocean mixing processes, control ocean-atmosphere interactions and help define the ocean’s response to climate change.

Abigail is working on improving current understanding of fronts in the presence of turbulence and mixing, primarily using theory and models, and plans to eventually implement these findings in global climate models.
