Peter’s research interests include satellite oceanography, laboratory modeling of rotating fluids, and distributed data system development. His primary interests are in satellite oceanography where he studies mesoscale circulation, air-sea interaction, and ocean fronts. Peter is currently working on the development of a distributed data system for oceanography.
Peter earned his doctoral degree in Experimental High Energy Physics from Cornell University. He is currently a Professor of oceanography at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography.
