Research Interests

My research has centered on geophysical fluid dynamics problems in the Great Lakes and other shallow enclosed seas. This has included theoretical, numerical, and observational investigations of circulation, thermal structure, seiches, storm surges, wind waves, and air-sea interaction. Current research involves numerical modeling of three-dimensional lake-scale circulation, thermal structure, and sediment dynamics.
