Research Interests

Physical oceanography, coastal ocean dynamics, geophysical fluid dynamics. In particular: exploring mixing and turbulence processes in coastal environments based on field observations; use of laboratory experiments to elucidate fundamental physical processes that cannot be resolved in large-scale numerical models; vegetation dynamics.
