Abstract:

My interests are in oceanic phenomena that contribute to stirring and mixing with the ultimate goal of parameterizing their impact on larger scales through dynamical understanding. Phenomena of interest range from the mesoscale 10 km to the microscale 1 cm, with an emphasis on their interactions, and include internal waves, tides, potential-vorticity-carrying fine-structure vortical mode, turbulence and double diffusion.
