Research interests

My main expertise is in applied mathematics, modelling water wave propagation in the presence of floating bodies (like ice sheets, for example). I have other interests in elasticity, wave propagation in random media, and mathematical techniques such as the Wiener-Hopf and residue calculus techniques. I am currently working on including the interactions between waves and sea ice in the new sea ice model neXtSIM that is being developed at NERSC.
