Irina received her B.S. in plasma physics from Nizhniy Novgorod State University, Russia in 2002, a M.S. in physics from University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2003, and a Ph.D. in applied marine physics from University of Miami in 2007. She is currently working as a postdoctoral investigator at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Her main research interests are dynamical systems theory and transport and mixing processes in oceanic and atmospheric flows. Irina’s other research interests include Hamiltonian dynamics, underwater acoustics, and magnetic confinement of plasmas.
