Nonlinear processes and complex flow in the Ocean

Welcome to our group's website. Our research falls under the broad umbrellas of fluid dynamics, nonlinear multiscale science, and scientific computing with a focus on the simulation and analysis of turbulence and complex fluid flows. Our general aim is to derive precise testable predictions about the nature of such flows, which are of interest to engineers, plasma physicists, astrophysicists, and climate scientists. The techniques we use and develop range from careful high-performance computations and semi-empirical physical reasoning, to abstract mathematical analysis and proving rigorous theorems. Moreover, the mathematical and numerical methodologies we have been developing provide novel computation-intensive ways for scientists and engineers to probe huge data sets from simulations, satellite observations, and experimental measurements.
