Personal profile

Research interests

Combining empirical, theoretical and numerical knowledge to understand major ocean processes in continental shelf oceans and the adjacent seas. Development and implementation of different types of regional ocean modelling systems including improvements through data assimilation techniques. Special interest in real-time applications and operational coastal ocean forecasting systems using atmosphere -ocean-wave 2-way coupled models, their predictability and uncertainty. Work on data assimilation in coastal and ocean-wide basin systems using advanced 4DVar techniques and ROMS model, optimization on HPC supercomputer facilities. Mentioned methods enable me to combine field measurements and model dynamics in a dynamical and consistent way, better then each of them separately. Downscaling dynamics using nesting – high-resolution approach for ocean simulations with focus on advanced numerical techniques combined with data assimilation. Interactions and collaborations with bio-chemical modelling groups for advancing interdisciplinary research.
