    • Professor EH.Environmental & Biomolecular Systems

Research interests: Understand how coastal margins function under the complex influence of rivers, ocean, climate and humans – and how to integrate such understanding in broad-range societal decisions on sustainable development. My anchoring expertise is on observation and prediction of the physics of estuaries and plumes, and I collaborate with scientists of diverse backgrounds to integrate physics into thinking on biogeochemistry, fisheries, and ecological processes.
