    marine renewable energy 

     

     

     

    Research Statement

    Current research interests include

    modelling the fate and cycling of organic pollutants in the Northwest European shelf seas, Baltic Sea, Black Sea and coastal Taiwan region;

    pollutant exchange processes in marine ecosystems and impacts of climate change and man-made pollution on ocean circulation and ecosystem functioning;

    wind and wave wind energy as potential renewable energy sources.
