Expertise Profile

Tamay OzgokmenTamay Ozgokmen’s research interest centers around the investigation of multi-scale oceanic flows using non-hydrostatic numerical models and Lagrangian methods. Ozgokmen has been working towards a better understanding and modeling the dynamics of deep and dense flows around complex bathymetry, surface mixed layers, submesoscale flows, as well as developing sampling strategies for ocean transport. Gaining a better insight about the nature of multi-scale transport and turbulence in the ocean is critical for improving ocean forecasting capabilities for practical problems such as transport of pollutants by ocean currents.
