Hello and welcome to my webpage. I'm a fluid dynamicist working on problems in viscous fluid mechanics,
ranging from instability of boundary layers, nonlinear dynamics, indirect viscosity measurements, and drag reduction.
I enjoy using perturbation and numerical methods, but I have also performed some
research in experimental fluid mechanics.
I am always open to discuss and explore problems
and ideas in applied mathematics and fluid mechanics and to start new research collaborations,
so feel free to wander around my website and drop me an email.
