I am a numerical modeler mainly interested in coastal and shelf seas processes. I have studied different regions including the North Sea, Caspian Sea and North Atlantic. I have investigated various processes in these areas such as interaction of tides and topography, topographic upwelling, wind induced currents in coastal regions, water mass formation and interaction of stratification and tides. Currently I am investigating the processes that affect stratification in the German Bight region.
