    Research Interests

    I am interested in all aspects of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. My most recent work has involved the dynamics of oceanic equatorial waves: their generation, decay and interactions with strong equatorial currents. I am also interested in the interactions of coastal Kelvin waves with narrow straits, including the scattering of baroclinic modes by sills within the straits.
