With broad research interests in fluid mechanics and nonlinear acoustics embracing both computational and theoretical aspects, my current focus is on stochastic fluid dynamics and complex ocean flows. I also study efficient and robust absorbing boundary conditions for nonlinear equations, as well as high-performance numerical methods for large scientific problems.

msC and urop opportunities

  • Nonlinear optimization in ocean modelling
  • Vortex dynamics in the ocean
  • Stochastic parameterisations for ocean models
  • Stability analysis of turbulent oceanic flows
  • Multiscale energy transfers in the ocean
  • Modelling the ocean with primitive equations
  • Large scale low-frequecny variability of the ocean
  • Absorbing boundary conditions for nonlinear wave phenomena

    Please contact me directly if you have your own ideas for the research project.
