    Research Interests

    Coastal physical oceanography including the study of internal tides, high-frequency internal waves, and circulation in the vicinity of fronts; estuarine oceanography including the dynamics that drive the three-dimensional circulation, the mechanisms that transport and disperse materials within estuaries, and the time response of estuaries to changes in forcing; physical/biological interactions which influence larval dispersal.
