I am a physical oceanographer working on the dynamics of large-scale ocean circulation. I have been working on the Deep Eastern Boundary Currents and their possible contribution to global meridional overturning circulation. My research interest lies in large-scale ocean circulation, meridional overturning circulation, and the relationship between ocean circulation and climate. I use both realistic and idealized OGCM configurations, as well as simple analytical models for research.
