Prof. Lisa Beal

Professor and Associate Dean of Research

Lisa Beal is a Professor of Oceanography in the Ocean Sciences department at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. She is an expert on the Agulhas System of currents off South Africa and has brought recognition to the key role this System plays in a warming climate through her publications and international leadership.

Beal teaches courses on Physical Oceanography and on Climate Change. She advises graduate students and postdoctoral scientists in both the Ocean Sciences and the Meteorology and Physical Oceanography programs, conducting research using observing and modelling tools. 

In addition to her research, Beal is involved in community work to increase the engagement, recruitment, and retention of women and minorities in oceanography. She also works to advance resources and capacity for ocean sciences in southern Africa, where she teaches periodically in the Honors program at the University of Cape Town and has formed local partnerships to develop sustained observations of the Agulhas System.

Assistant Scientist


Dr. Kathryn Gunn (Kathy)

Postdockathy

I am a postdoc working on the Agulhas System Climate Array (ASCA) project. My current focuses are freshwater transport and eddy fluxes. Before arriving in Miami, I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge researching seismic oceanography. Outside of work you will often find me at the beach, doing yoga, or attempting a run.

I am a fifth year PhD student, working on the Agulhas System Climate Array (ASCA) project. My dissertation is focused on estimating the heat transport of the South Indian Ocean. I love going to sea, although it doesn't work very well with my other passion of running marathons. I studied math and earth sciences at Northwestern before coming to Miami for my PhD.
