Research Interests

The focus of my research is to improve our understanding of how mesoscale and submesoscale processes such as buoyant plumes generated by melting glaciers, buoyancy driven surface and bottom currents, turbulent mixing and entrainment, river plumes and mesoscale vortices influence and modify the general circulation of the ocean. My principal goal is to improve our understanding of the underlying dynamics, leading to a more reliable and accurate representation of these processes in ocean and climate models.

Laboratory and theoretical model for geophysical fluid dynamics.

I am an active member of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and a faculty member at the GFD Summer School Program.
