Professional Background

Dr Rosman’s area of expertise is environmental fluid dynamics. Her research focuses on the physical processes underlying water motion in estuarine and coastal systems. She aims to understand and predict how water moves in response to drivers such as wind, tides, waves, and density gradients, and the implications for transport of biologically important materials. She tackles these issues using a combination of field measurements, computer simulations, and theory.

Recent research projects

  • Interactions of ocean currents and waves with complex reef topography
  • Wind-driven circulation and mixing, and impacts on hypoxia, in micro-tidal estuaries
  • Wave transformations through salt marshes
