Research fellow and researcher in climate and fluid physics, Australian National University
Navid is a physicist at heart and he’s fascinated with geophysical fluid dynamics.
His PhD research focussed on atmospheric dynamics and in particular the study of how the subpolar jet stream interacts with atmospheric turbulence. After finishing his PhD, he was awarded a NOAA Climate & Global Change postdoctoral fellowship (2015-2017) to go at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego. At Scripps, he tried to shed insight on some of the physical processes that occur in the ocean by studying the interaction among oceanic eddies, large-scale ocean currents, and underwater mountains at the bottom of the ocean.
He joined ANU as part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes in May 2018. He is part of the climate variability project focussing on the circulation of the Southern Ocean.

Scientists already know the oceans are rapidly warming and sea levels are rising. But thats not all. Now, thanks to satellite observations, we have three decades worth of data on how the speeds of ocean surface currents...
One of the most striking features of Jupiter a gaseous giant with no solid surface is the coloured bands that encircle the planet. These bands are so large and distinct that they can be seen from here on Earth using a...
