Research Interests

My research focuses on the use of data assimilation and causality (cause and effect) inference for better understanding geophysical fluids, with emphasis on but not limited to the ocean. This includes further development of data-assimilation methodology for highly nonlinear high-dimensional geophysical systems and of causality theory for these systems. My present research is described by these two projects (note that these pages still refer to the University of Reading):

Data assimilation in highly nonlinear systems
CUNDA: Causality Relations using nonlinear Data Assimilation
