I am interested in nearshore hydrodynamic processes including wave and wind-driven dynamics on the coast, inlet and estuarine circulation, and small-scale turbulence. My thesis work is focused on wave-, wind-, and tide-driven circulation at a coastal ocean inlet, using field observations. I have also worked on projects examining tidal mixing in a stratified estuary, with field and model data, and turbulence intensity effects on oyster larval diving behavior, with lab experiments
