Research Oceanographer, Centre for Earth and Ocean Research

Areas of key interest are coastal oceanography, boundary layer dynamics, fine- and micro-scale processes, internal waves and mixing. I am also interested in the modelling of ocean dispersion, following my own efforts using stochastic particle tracking techniques. Recently I developed an Oceanographic Mooring Design and Dynamics package for MATLAB.

My Curriculum Vitae includes details of my research career, a list of publications and descriptions of my activites over the last ten years.
