Remi Tailleux has been a lecturer in physical oceanography in the department of meteorology at the University of Reading since August 2007. Previously, he held a series of junior and senior postdoctoral appointments in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at UCLA (1996-2000), at Laboratoire de Meteorologie Dynamique in Paris (2000-2003), at the Climate Systems Analysis Group at the University of Cape Town (2003-2005), and at the National Center for Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Reading (2005-2007). He got his PhD in Physical Oceanography from the University of Paris 6 in 1996. His main interests include: energetics and thermodynamics of the ocean and climate systems, oceanic Rossby waves and eddies, parameterization of gravity waves and cumulus convection, general geophysical fluid dynamics, theories of the large-scale oceanic and atmospheric circulation, energetics and thermodynamics of hurricanes, physics of oceanic water masses, theories of coarse-graining, meridional overturning circulation, turbulent mixing in stratified fluids.
