Research interests

I am interested in understanding air-sea gas exchange dynamics of surface ocean oxygen and carbon dioxide together with their implications on ocean acidification and deoxygenation. Moreover, I study about the biogeochemistry of the upwelling systems with a special emphasis on marine carbonate system and nutrients.
