My research experience has spanned over 20 years and has focused on understanding coastal and near-shore environmental physical processes. Each of these research areas has involved the synthesis of physical information with the biological and/or chemical characteristics of the environment through the development of environmental and ecological models. In each of these areas I have published the work in international journals. For several years of this period, I taught physics at universities in Australia and the USA and created courses in environmental physics.
