My current research focuses on shelf processes including coastal upwelling and estuarine connectivity, circulation in the Gulf of Mexico, and the interaction between physical processes and marine ecosystems. My current research projects include studies of estuarine systems and their connectivity with the offshore environment, impacts of environmental variability on fisheries, deepwater processes over steep topography, and influence of air-sea interaction on the near-surface velocity profile. I explore these problems by analyzing observational data and by performing experiments with numerical ocean models. I am particularly interested in interdisciplinary applications of physical oceanographic studies, collaborating with researchers in the biological sciences, marine ecology, meteorology, and computational science.
