Research

The focus of my research is environmental fluid mechanics. Our group conducts experimental and theoretical research on problems associated with our environment and the processes that affect and are impacted by climate change. We study and develop models of the fluid flow in low-energy buildings, gravity-driven flows in stratified and rotating fluids, internal waves and mixing in stratified fluids
