Luc Rainville received his Ph.D from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego in June 2004. In collaboration with his advisor Robert Pinkel, he worked primarily on the propagation of the internal tide from the Hawaiian Ridge, estimating the energy flux of the internal wave spectrum from direct measurements and investigating the factors affecting the propagation of the internal tide. He is now at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, with interests ranging from western boundaries currents and mesoscale circulation to measurements of mixing in the Arctic.
