Research Interests
Fluid mechanics and scalar transport in estuaries and the coastal ocean, including stratified turbulence, estuarine exchange, dispersion and residence time, bathymetric effects on shallow tidal flows, sediment transport, frontal processes, and physical/biological coupling. Research methods integrate field observations and numerical modeling, ranging from simple analytical models to 3-d hydrodynamic codes for flow and transport.
