Geophysical fluid dynamics, in particular turbulent flow rectification and eddy-mean flow interactions, using analytical analysis, numerical simulation and laboratory studies.
The dynamics of western boundary current jets and their associated recirculation gyres, in particular the role of eddy fluxes in these systems, using in-situ observations, high-resolution ocean general circulation models, and process-model studies.
