wave I am a physical oceanographer working in the Department of Oceanography, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada. I am in charge of a regional ocean modelling group which consists of several graduate students, research associates, post-doctoral fellows, and research assistants. The main research interests of my group include the physical processes of coastal waters and shelf seas, and simulation and prediction of marine environmental conditions in the ocean ranging from coastal waters of about 10 km such as Lunenburg Bay to the northwest Atlantic Ocean. The main research tool used in my group is numerical ocean circulation models at different level of complexity. As a faculty member in the department, I am also responsible for teaching courses and supervising graduate students. If you are interested in research programs, please send me an email.
