Research Description

I am interested in the physical and biogeochemical processes in the ocean that govern large-scale ocean circulation, as well as the dynamical processes that can affect our ability to accurately reconstruct the state of the ocean and climate in the past from marine geological records. My current research focuses on the formation of deep-sea storms induced by surface current instability and deep cyclogenesis, as well as the dynamics of the ocean bottom mixed layer.
