Fluid dynamicist unraveling geophysical and environmental flows. My research focuses on characterizing the physics governing transport and mixing processes in natural waters, such as lakes and coastal seas. For this, I blend theory, high-resolution numerical modelling with laboratory and field observations. My goal is to develop mathematical models that reproduce and provide a physical understanding of the functioning of aquatic environments.
