Research interests

My research interests focus on the stability and the low-frequency variability of the ocean circulation and its role in the climate system. Specifically, I am investigating the impact of forcing, such as the freshwater & heat fluxes or wind stress, and initial condition on the ocean dynamics through analytical approaches and numerical modeling.

  • Low-frequency Variability of the Meridional Overturning Circulation
  • ENSO dynamics
  • Dynamical System Theory
  • Numerical Modeling

Currently working on:

Predictability and Optimal Initial Perturbations of the Ocean Dynamics

Research group

Physical Oceanography

Research project(s)

MESoscale Ocean eddies and CLImate Predictability (MESO-CLIP)
