Associate Chair, Graduate Studies
Department of Applied Mathematics
I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Waterloo. My research area is geophysical turbulence. Broadly defined, turbulence is chaotic fluid flow with interactions across a wide range of length scales. In the atmosphere and ocean, the range of scales is huge: from millimetres to thousands of kilometres. Geophysical turbulence is influenced by buoyancy, the rotation of the Earth, and phase changes of water, and my research examines all of these effects.
