Dr. Olavo Marques is an observational oceanographer interested in how waves and turbulence interact with the ocean circulation. He is originally from Brazil, where he got his bachelor of science in oceanography from University of Sao Paulo, and then came to the US where he did his PhD at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). In his PhD research, he used observations from Tasmania to study how deep-ocean internal tides impinge on complex topography over the continental slope and drive near-bottom turbulent mixing. He is currently a postdoc at the Naval Postgraduate School and the UCSD, where he is studying how surface surface waves and coastal processes are impacted by rocky environments, such as those found throughout central California.
