Research interests

    I am interested in regional ocean processes, which I study through modeling and observations, with an emphasis on altimetry. I am also interested in uncertainty estimates, and their application through data assimilation into models. I have recently started to investigate the impact of ocean conditions on hurricane development. I currently work mostly on the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Region.
