I am a physical oceanographer working on improvement of ocean general circulation models. I am interested in small scale mixing in the ocean and its representation in large scale climate models. My main focus areas include gravity currents, exchange flows, mesoscale eddies and deep convection. I use climate models for developing parameterization, hypothesis testing, and high resolution numerical simulations for idealized process studies.
