Research Interests

Geophysical fluid dynamics deals with the motion of different media such as air or water on a rotating sphere such as our planet Earth. More specifically, in our group we describe and analyze the movement of the global oceans and atmosphere using mathematical equations of physical laws. We then aim to either analyze these equations by classical mathematical techniques or solve them numerically using, in particular, high performance computing on dozens to thousands of parallel processors.
