Dr. Haus is an Associate Professor at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School for Marine and Atmospheric Science. His research focuses on experimental studies of ocean surface currents, radar remote sensing of oceanographic processes, shelf and estuary dynamics and wave-current interactions. The laboratory studies of air-sea interactions and turbulence in the ASIST facility greatly inform all of these research activities.

Dahai’s research interests include enthalpy (heat and mass) exchange processes at and near the air-water interface, role of sea spray in air-sea exchange and boundary layer turbulence. Her current study includes small-scale laboratory measurements of air-sea fluxes of momentum, heat and mass transfer. Dahai got her B.S. in Natural Sciences from the Inha University in South Korea and her M.S. from the University of Miami.

Ivan’s most recent work was focused on the wind-wave momentum flux in high wind conditions. His research provided an extension to existing empirical parameterizations into rough sea conditions with severe wave breaking and spray generation. To study these processes, Ivan has developed a new automated wave-following robot, capable of placing a static pressure probe within ~2 cm from a rough wave surface. Ivan got his M.S. and B.S. in physics from the Moscow State University.
