Personal Profile

My primary interest is in the physics of oceanic small-scale processes, especially internal waves, turbulence, and small-scale vortical motions. My specialty is interpreting measurements in terms of physics at small scales. Previous work includes turbulent mixing in the open ocean, turbulence boundary layer dynamics, vorticity and vortex flux in tidal channels, and a Lagrangian description of internal waves and turbulence. My work has been published in Deep-Sea Research, the Journal of Geophysical Research, the Journal of Physical Oceanography and the Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology. I joined the Apply Physics Laboratory at University of Washington in 1991.
