I am interested in the general problems of internal waves and the ocean mixing. Knowledge of these is important for advancing the performance of operational and climate models, as well as for understanding local problems such as pollutant dispersal and biological productivity. In the specific case of this DRIs focus, nonlinear internal waves NLIW, the waves currents and displacements are strong enough to impact Navy operations such as diving, ROV operation and mine detectionremoval.
