padilla_300

Alexandra Padilla

Postdoctoral Scholar

Research Interests: Fate and transport of methane gas bubbles released from the seafloor; understanding how physical properties of gas bubbles (e.g., shape, size, surface coating, etc.) affect the scattering of sound and the dissolution process of gas bubbles in liquid mediums through laboratory experimentation, field work, and sensor development.
