- Fields of Specialization and Research Interests:
- Specialized in geophysical fluid dynamics problems in the Great
Lakes and other shallow enclosed seas including theoretical,
numerical, and observational investigations of circulation, thermal
structure, seiches, storm surges, wind waves, and air-sea
interaction. Current research interest - Numerical modeling of
three-dimensional lake-scale circulation and thermal structure.
