Research Interest

I have a general interest in Ocean-Atmosphere interactions and physical oceanography as well as a quest of using science and technology to make life better, to educate the public through media outlets and to provide information for policy makers. The Sea-surface Micro Layer (SML) has largely been married with the sea surface in general and studied as one unit despite its unique nature. My interest centres on understanding the SML behavior over space and time with focus on the essential climate variables.
