General Research Interests: 
  • Fluid mechanics and experimental techniques
    • Multi-phase flows
    • Particle/turbulence interaction
    • Turbulent mixing in complex geometries
Current project topics include applying Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) to the suspension of sediment in turbulent channel flows, air entrainment by plunging liquid jets, fundamental dynamics of spray cooling for electronic applications, and the effects of turbulent mixing on safety issues within Pressurized Water Reactors of nuclear power plants.
