My research group aims to quantify the mixing in environmental flows, particularly those in large lakes and the coastal ocean where stratification and the Earth’s rotation play a dominant role in the dynamics.
We study such mixing and dispersion in both the field studies and through laboratory studies.
Currently our main areas of research are in the study of turbidity currents, density currents , double diffusive convection, sediment laden convection, rotating turbulence, Coriolis effects, biological fluid coupling, dispersion in environmental flows, dynamics of internal seiches, surface seiches and under-ice processes in the Great lakes.
