Research Interests

My research interests cover different aspects of physical oceanography in the deep Arctic Basin and adjacent seas, with emphasis on small-scale/mesoscale processes (vertical mixing, double-diffusion, seasonal changes, tidal dynamics, upwelling/downwelling) and the long-term thermohaline changes in the Arctic Ocean. My current research focuses mainly on vertical mixing processes and their relation to water dynamics and the impact of oceanic heat fluxes on the sea-ice growth. The freshwater-marine coupling is another main focus of my scientific interests.
Being a member of the BaySys team, I am currently involved in a study of freshwater fluxes in the Hudson Bay altered by both the climate change and hydroelectric regulation of river discharge.
