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. To address my research questions, I rely on various modelling techniques and tools, from simple theoretical 1D models to complex 3D general ocean circulation models. My current research focuses on the formation of deep cyclones and their ability to redistribute sediments in the deep ocean.
