I am a sea-going physical oceanographer with research interests in process studies related to ocean dynamics. My research activities have been in the areas of tropical and subtropical ocean circulations in the western Pacific Ocean, and their relationships with climate changes. I like to consider the inter-relationships between various components of the oceanic circulation at different time and length scales, and hence governed by different physics. I conduct microstructure measurements in the far western Pacific Ocean every year since 2017 to study the smaller-scale turbulent motions in different El Ni?o states and the relationship between them.
