Annick Pouquet obtained her Ph.D. in 1976 at the Observatoire de Nice, France, working on turbulence in the presence of a magnetic field, using models and direct numerical simulations. She also investigated the origin of magnetic fields and supersonic turbulence as it is observed in the interstellar medium. In 2000 she moved to the National Center for Atmospheric Research, where she is presently Scientist Emeritus. At the University of Colorado, she holds positions in both the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics and the Department of Applied Mathematics. Her current research focuses on turbulence and waves, particularly in systems where both rotation and stratification are present.

Viewpoint: Intermittent Turbulence in a Global Ocean Model

A large-scale model of ocean dynamics finds intermittent behavior that may have implications for how the ocean’s energy budget is assessed. Read More »
