About me: I came to ODU in 2007, after spending almost eighteen years at Princeton University. Over the past two decades I have managed and provided support to the Princeton Ocean Model (POM) users group of some 4,000 modelers from 70 countries; I have been involved with various projects of ocean modeling, including the development and testing of numerical codes, data assimilation techniques and forecast systems.
Research interests: physical oceanography, numerical ocean modeling, coastal circulation, mixing processes, physical-biological interactions and more. I use models for wide range of simulations, from Caribbean coral reefs to Cook Inlet, Alaska, and from the Dead Sea to the Bering Sea (see globe below). Recent studies focus on sea level rise and flooding.
Other Activities:
Editor: Ocean Dynamics (Springer), Special Issues: IWMO-2009 (Part I and II), IWMO-2010, IWMO-2011
Organizer, International Workshop on Modeling the Ocean IWMO-2010, Norfolk, May 24-26, 2010
In the News: CCPO Newsletter-2008, ODU News-2010, China Trip-2011,
Sea Level Rise: ODU News Tidewater Curents, GRL-2012 paper, JGR-2013 paper
Projects: Red Sea - Dead Sea Canal (World Bank), Beluga Whales in Cook Inlet, Alaska (NOAA/Fisheries), MesoAmerican Barrier Reef , Bering Sea paper (2013), Beluga Whales paper (2013)
