I am currently an assistant professor (cf. lecturer in the UK system)
at the Department of Ocean Sciences (OCES) at HKUST
(Hong Kong University of Science and Technology). I am generally
interested in fluid dynamical questions relevant to geophysical and
astrophysical systems, and have expertise in using/developing
numerical models and inverse methods.
Beyond the page groupings, my contact details may be found under ABOUT, and a calendar of my
schedule may be found under TRAVEL.
(ONGOING) I have money left over to fund a
PhD/MEnv student (no particular restrictions on
nationality) to work on either theoretical aspects of
baroclinic lifecycles or something to do with probing South
China Sea circulation through inverse methods. A willingness to do
some scientific programming is essential, and a background in some of
physics/mathematics/computer science/engineering/environmental science
will be highly desirable. Please get in touch if you are interested!
