My research interests are in the field of remote sensing and satellite oceanography, by means of both active and passive instruments, and in the exploitation of the synergy and integration of data coming from different space-borne instruments with traditional in situ measurements. Within this broader range of interests, one particular topic of research is multisatellite observations of planetary waves in the oceans. This work has focused on the observation of extra-equatorial baroclinic planetary (Rossby) waves and the study of their characteristics with altimetry, infrared radiometry and ocean colour. In particular, I have contributed to the first simultaneous observation of Rossby waves in sea surface height and sea surface temperature (SST) and to the first global studies of Rossby waves in SST and in ocean colour.

A theme which underpins my research is the development and application of advanced statistical and signal processing techniques to the retrieval of oceanographic information from satellites (also the topic of the a SOES course in which I lectured in the recent past). This includes the development and implementation of novel techniques for the analysis of satellite data, as well as the study of new sensors and new applications of existing sensors, as in the case of coastal altimetry. This is a new exciting frontier for satellite altimetry, one of the most successful techniques ever to look at the ocean, and I am involved in the coordination of the international community of coastal altimetrists through the moderation of the COASTALT-SWT group and the organization of the Coastal Altimetry Workshops. And it has important application, from capturing currents which flow very close to the coastline like the Agulhas Current, to helping with the monitoring and forecasting of extreme events like storm surges, which we do in the eSurge Project.

Last but not least, I am interested in teleworking and collaborative work in distributed environments - which means, using the net to work better and travel less.
