Research Interests

I am interested in mathematics and physics applied in the field of atmospheric dynamics. Through the years, I have come to focus on the weather and climate in Southeast Asia, especially their relevance to environmental change and sustainability. The following is a list of topics that I am passionate about.

Weather and climate of Southeast Asia
Multi-scale interactions in tropical atmosphere
Predictability and complexity in atmospheric modelling
Regional climate modelling
Numerical weather prediction
General circulation of the atmosphere
Mixing and transport in fluids
Geophysical fluid dynamics
