Zouhair is a research scientist (oberassistent) in the Environmental Physics group (UP) at the Institute of Biogeochemistry and Pollutant Dynamics (IBP), Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich (ETH Zürich), Switzerland. The main focus of his current research is on the coastal ocean. Three majors topics that he is strongly interested in are (i) the functioning and the natural variability of coastal ecosystems, (ii) the vulnerability of the future coastal ocean to various anthropogenic perturbations such as global warming, ocean acidification and hypoxia and (iii) the role of small scale processes and particularly mesoscale eddies in marine carbon cycling and biological productivity, and the impact this has on the global climate system.
