Physical Oceanography

I'm a PhD student studying the transport of nanoplastics in our ocean, and working with the OceanParcels and Nanoplastics groups.

I'm interested in the study of large scale flows in the ocean using numerical simulations and direct observations to see how they transport plastic. I believe in the necessity of doing intelligent simplifications of problems and in constructing simple models to understand the underlying physics of certain processes. Also, I'm interested in dynamical systems in the atmosphere and the ocean.
