Bio

II come from China and did my undergraduate at Zhejiang University, China. I have a strong interest and curiosity in Physical Oceanography and want to uncover the mechanisms of distinctive physical phenomena in the ocean. My current research focuses on internal waves in estuaries. Internal waves are waves below the sea surface and have significant impacts on shipping, ocean engineering and marine ecosystem. I am using numerical modeling to investigate the mechanism of internal wave generation in coastal plain estuaries like the Chesapeake Bay.
