Research Interests

Natural and Man-made Water Bodies:

Mixing processes in lakes, estuaries, reservoirs, rivers, wetlands and coastal waters; numerical modeling of lakes, reservoirs, estuaries, rivers and wetlands; artificial destratification and reaeration; sediment dynamics; hypersaline lakes; remote sensing; Lagrangian measurements; fate of fine particles; real-time environmental data networks; climate change and water quality; transport and spread of aquatic invasive species

Numerical Modeling:
