Research Statement

My research strategy is to employ a combination of hydrodynamic models and field observations to motivate and validate hypotheses about fluid dynamics and transport.

  • Interests span a range of scales: from small (e.g. river hydrokinetic energy devices) to larger scale geophysical flows (e.g. ocean circulation in shallow nearshore coastal environments such as Cook Inlet and the Alaskan Beaufort Sea)
  • Other interests include
    • How fluid flows affect and interact with geological (e.g. sediment transport and coastal morphology), chemical (e.g. dissolved nutrients) and biological (e.g. humans, fisheries, marine mammals and plankton) processes in Arctic and sub Arctic settings
  • Interested in the application of both mature and emerging technologies to study these processes using remote and in-situ techniques such as
    • HF RADAR, Moorings with profiling CTDs, transmissometers and ADCPs


  • Ocean modeling using the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS)
  • Numerical and analytical techniques for solving PDEs & ODEs
  • Analyzing observational oceanographic data sets
  • Ship and field based observations including
    • Ship-based hydrographic techniques
    • Moored observations of water column hydrography and velocity
    • Experience with installing, operating and maintaining CodarOS Seasondes
    • Familiarity with various hydrological and geophysical field methods
