My general research interests include: air-sea interactions, environmental fluid mechanics and hydraulics of ice covered rivers. My specific interests are in: frazil ice detection, infrared remote sensing of the ocean surface, air-water gas transfer, wave breaking, limnology, wind wave mechanics, air entrainment, and hydraulics.
