For my dissertation, I am studying the dynamics of stratified flows over topography. I am using analytical and numerical methods to examine the vertical circulation and redistribution of tracers over slopes with application to shelfbreak fronts.
My other interests include biophysical interactions, coastal flows, eddy dynamics and the role of mixing in the thermohaline circulation.
