Profile

I'm working on geophysical fluid dynamics. My research interest covers all kinds of problems related to fluid motions in planetary surfaces and interiors(atmospheres, mantles and central cores), as well as problems of the Earth's atmosphere and ocean. I also develop technique and software of numerical methods in order to deal with various problems in geophysical fluid dynamics. Recent topics of my research are: 1) Fluid motions in the Earth's inner core: Dynamo theory 2) Surface flows generated by convection trapped below a stable layer in rapidly rotating spherical shells
