Activity summary

My research is focused on Mediterranean Water eddies, known as “Meddies”. Meddies are subsurface mesoscale vortices occurring in the northeast Atlantic at a depth of about 1000 meters. Due to their depth, it is relatively difficult to identify, track, and study Meddies in a consistent manner.
