I have a strong interest in (sub)mesoscale turbulence in the ocean and how they interact with the large-scale ocean circulation and bioproductivity particularly in the Southern Ocean. I approach the problems by analyzing big data outputs from general circulation models, idealized numerical simulations and satelite observations.

xregrid is a Python package for aggregating and/or regridding data onto a orthogonal grid using the KDTree algorithm. xregrid is motivated by the fact that non-orthogonal grids are becoming increasingly common in general circulation models. In order to conduct physically meaningful analysis on the model outputs and compare them with satellite observations, however, we are in need of regridding the data onto orthogonal grids.
oceanmodes is a Python package for linear quasigeostrophic normal mode analysis given the background state of velocity and density profile.
Bioproductivity in the Southern Ocean
I am interested in the impact of eddy fluxes in a submesoscale eddy resolving simulation on the transport of momentum and tracers such as heat, salt, carbon and nutrients, and how bioproductivity is affected in the euphotic zone of the Southern Ocean.
