Research Interests

​Adil is interested in uncertainty quantification and data assimilation for coastal ocean forecasting. His Ph.D. thesis focuses on developing uncertainty reduction and parameter estimation techniques for coastal ocean model, using Bayesian inference and Spectral methods such as Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF), Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC), and Polynomial Chaos (PC) expansion.
