Zhuomin Chen

(Ph.D., Rutgers) Research Scientist of Marine Sciences

I am a female oceanographer with a diverse interdisciplinary background, encompassing expertise in physical oceanography, marine biogeochemistry, ecology, and earth system modeling.

My research interests include:

  • Coastal ocean processes, including marine extremes and oceanic eddies (e.g., Gulf Stream eddies);
  • Linkages between coastal ocean and large-scale climate and ocean processes (e.g., the Gulf Stream);
  • Seasonal-to-decadal prediction and predictability of driver variables relevant to marine ecosystems;
  • Climate impacts on habitat shifts of diverse marine species (e.g., economically important fisheries).
