Research interests include the physical processes that control the environment in shelf seas and estuaries and their impact on biological and sediment processes in the water column. In particular; the interaction between buoyancy input and tidal stirring and the resulting tidal mixing fronts; and the effects of freshwater input to estuaries and shelf seas.
