The main areas of research

  • Microstructure of the ocean: turbulent mixing, double diffusion and differential mixing
  • Mesoscale modeling of ocean processes based on eddy-resolving models
  • Intrusive layering of ocean fronts: modeling and empirical data analysis
  • Modeling of accidental deep-sea oil spills
  • Lateral mixing in the oceans based on data from drifters
