Research interests

My current research interests are:

Examples of the results in some of these areas are shown below.

Acoustic scattering by rough surfaces

Surface field obtained using a left-right splitting series

Inverse scattering

Changing the surface rms height Changing the distance of the measurement plane

Reconstructing a randomly rough surface profile, from measurements of the scattered field at a fixed distance

Acoustic field generated by a rotating propeller

Field generated around a submarine hull
