Topics of interest:

Physical Oceanography: marine turbulence, internal waves, patchiness, double diffusion and interleaving; air-sea interaction and structure of the near-surface boundary layer; bottom boundary layer processes in shallow-waters, mesoscale eddies, jets, and fronts; topography related mixing in coastal and deep oceans.
Approach: field measurements, data analysis, theoretical interpretation and numerical modeling.
