My group is interested in the development and application of multiscale coastal ocean models to simulate the dynamics of currents and waves, and the transport of oil, sediments, larvae and other biological materials. These models allow us to achieve unprecedented accuracy to bring new insight into the physical and biological processes at play. We are particularly interested in marine connectivity, environmental impact assessment and coastal vulnerability.
