About Me:

I use numerical ocean models to study circulation and transport in lakes and oceans and run simulations on the High Performance Computing Virtual Laboratory at Queens University.

  • The RMC SQUID (Surface Quinte Unmanned Ideal Drifter) Project. Monitoring the surface circulation in the Bay of Quinte with GPS drifters.
  • Identifying seiche periods and patterns in Lake Quesnel, B.C to study downstream water transport after the Mount Polley Mine Tailings pond failure.
  • Looking at long-term temperature trends in the Bay of Quinte, Ontario using the Finite Volume Community Ocean Model.
  • Studying eddy-generation in the Northeast Pacific using the Parallel Ocean Program.
  • Mapping out drifter patterns and seasonal and decadal scale physical processes for the Scotian Shelf off the coast of Nova Scotia.
