My research focuses on the physical dynamics of estuarine and coastal systems. I study how currents
and density fields respond to winds, surface heat flux, tides, and buoyant river inputs.
Much of my research involves
adapting hydrodynamic models to construct simulations and idealized process models. The realistic simulations are powerful
tools for describing flow fields, diagnosing physical dynamics, and predicting circulation in coastal and estuarine waters.
The idealized process models are well-suited to isolating forcing-response relationships and generalizing findings.
