Aditya Ghodgaonkar

Aditya completed his Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering at R.V. College of Engineering, Bangalore (2017) before moving to Purdue University to pursue his M.S in the same field. Upon graduating from Purdue in 2019, he joined MIT to pursue his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. His previous work at Purdue focused on the development of numerical tools for investigating the self-similar propagation of low-Reynolds number gravity currents for geophysical applications. Presently his research interests lie in the areas of numerical methods and high-performance computing. Beyond research, Aditya enjoys reading, trekking, cycling, and would like to get involved in activities such as sailing, kayaking, and rowing.

Francesco Trotta

Francesco is a junior researcher at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Bologna, Italy. He joins MSEAS for Summer/Fall 2019 as an MIT Visiting Scholar. One of his main goals while at MSEAS is to complete joint research on multiscale multi-dynamics relocatable ocean modeling for forecasting, including deterministic and stochastic predictions.

Francesco’s research interests span the fields of high-resolution ocean modelling, submesoscale processes in the ocean, and extreme value analysis. He is part of a research group which developed the relocatable ocean platform SURF (Structured and Unstructured grid Relocatable ocean platform for Forecasting), based on the NEMO code.

Zach Duguid

Zach is a graduate student in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program for Applied Ocean Science and Engineering. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT in June 2018. With MSEAS, Zach’s research focused on the intersection of numerical ocean modeling and the guidance of autonomous vehicles. Aside from research, Zach enjoys staying active by cycling, skiing, and playing basketball. As an undergraduate, he played varsity football for four years as a linebacker and defensive back.​

Serena Zhao

Joining MSEAS in June 2019, Serena is a rising high school senior from Manhasset, New York who is extremely passionate about environmental conservation, future sustainability, and the Earth. She has researched areas spanning neurodegenerative disease to environmental engineering, but her primary interests lie in water use and conservation, especially of the oceans. In her free time, Serena enjoys cooking (which is unrelated to oceanic research but yields delicious results), traveling, and working with others to help the environment and spread her passion for the Earth.

Richard Beattie

Richard is a senior from Dublin, Ireland, participating in the Research Science Institute and hoping to attend university in the United States. He is interested in math and the intersection of computer science and the environment—especially how to build systems that aid ecological data assimilation. Richard has previously worked on a project to build tools that help citizen scientists in Ireland become involved in bat conservation. During his free time he enjoys running, reading and debating.
