Research Interests

* Stratified turbulence

* Eddies in the ocean (See below some simulations of Southern Ocean Eddies)

* Spurious numerical mixing

* Hydraulically controlled flows in narrow straits

* Ocean model improvement

* Horizontal Convection

* Performance of 2nd order turbulence closures in OGCMs

* Effect of topography in overflows

Fig 3. Evolution of the passive tracer isosurface field in an overflow passing over a ridge. The dense isosurface (red) mixes and disappears when it passes over the ridge.
