Pierre Ricco's research

Welcome to my research webpage! You can find here a brief summary of our results and links to presentations and papers. Our research focusses primarily on wall-bounded flows and in particular on turbulent drag reduction and transition to turbulence. We use both numerical (finite-difference and spectral methods) and asymptotic techniques (matched asymptotic expansions, WKBJ).
