Annalisa Bracco, Professor

Ph.D. 2000, University of Genova/Torino.     CV

I am a Professor in Ocean and Climate Dynamics in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech. My group’s research revolves around climate modes of variability, multiscale dynamics of geophysical flows and their interactions with biological and chemical tracers. Our work is intrinsically interdisciplinary and we use climate and ocean models and data science tools to investigate physical drivers in natural systems.
