Research Interests

​My research interest is focused on the characterization of the surface ocean processes, at different spatio-temporal scales using remote sensing data. During my postdoc I will work in the group of Professor Burton Jones, using HF Radar data to improve the knowledge of the ocean circulation processes of the Red Sea.
