Please email me if you don't find what you are looking for.

I am interested in the following general areas.

  • Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
  • Climate Dynamics
  • Circulation of Planetary Atmospheres (including Earth!)
  • Dynamical Oceanography
  • Turbulence, especially geostrophic turbulence


My new book Essentials of Atmospheric and Oceanic Dynamics is now published and available. To find out more, click here.
