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) If you are interested in joining as a PhD/MPhil
student (no particular restrictions on nationality) to work on problems
in physical oceanography / numerical modelling / data analyses / inverse
methods (or even in biogeochemistry and/or ecological models), you are
welcome to contact me to express an interest, but I am currently financially
committed so I am not able to confirm offers (probably until at least Feb/Mar
2020). Generally, 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.
For people looking for post-docs, we anticipate to be able to support
multiple positions in physical oceanography at HKUST OCES in studying fundamental
processes, numerical modelling (ocean and/or atmosphere + coupling), numerical
methods. Please get in touch if you think you have the related expertise (experience
ideal but not strictly necessary)!
