Research Interests & Professional Career

Research Interests

My scientific interests lie in the general field of fluid mechanics. In particular, boundary-layer turbulence and coherent structures, shear instability and mixing, secondary currents in channel flows, gravity waves and seiching. I am an experimentalist studying fluids by the means of optical measurement techniques such as, particle tracking velocimetry, 2D, stereo- or scanning particle image velocimetry.  I am also interested in advancing these measurement methods as well as quantifying the uncertainties.
