Research Interests

Ton's research interests are in geophysical fluid mechanics, understanding the role of nonlinearity in oceanic and atmospheric gravity waves. For his Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship, he is examining the role of waves in the transport and spreading of plastic pollution in the ocean.

Ton is also interested in stochastic processes, applied to the economics of natural resources and climate.
