My primary research goal is to understand the physical processes that determine circulation in the coastal ocean.
My students and I are currently involved in both the construction and testing of models and the development of
observational techniques. I am also interested in fundamental geophysical and environmental fluid dynamics and the
application of mathematical and statistical methods to the development of models of biogeochemical processes.
Since 2004 I have coordinated the development and operation of the Long Island Sound Integrated Coastal Observing System (LISICOS).
This system combines an observational network, a data system, models, and analyses to understand and predict processes
in Long Island Sound.
