I am a physical oceanographer and work mainly with models but am also interested in field work, especially in order to relate model and field results. My research is mainly related to mixing and transport processes, turbulence, marine renewable energy sources, and recently aqua culture. I have been working in small scales (direct numerical simulations, DNS, of micro-turbulence near the surface in order to study the transport velocity of green house gasses between ocean and atmosphere), medium scales (large eddy simulations, LES, of tidal flow including numerical model of power plant), and ocean scales (general circulation model, NEMO, including dispersion of pollutant).

Research interests

  • Circulation and transport processes.
  • Turbulence and mixing processes.

Special competences

  • Numerical modelling of turbulence and transport processes at different scales.
  • Marine and river renewable energy.
