 Research Interests
  My research investigates how water movement in natural water bodies affects the fate and transport of pollutants and natural substances. I am particularly interested in the interaction between fluid motion and chemical and biological processes.

My current research is focused on coastal water quality issues. Shipboard, satellite, and fixed mooring measurements in the Southern California Bight and Santa Monica Bay are integrated with high-resolution three-dimensional numerical model simulations to better understand coastal circulation patterns and the dynamics of coastal plankton populations. Fundamental studies of fine particle behavior in porous aggregates and deposited sediments contribute to the understanding of the fate of particle-associated contaminants. Measurements and modeling of atmospheric deposition quantifies the effect of this non-point source on urban runoff water quality.
