- Self-organisation and statistical mechanics in fluids
- Bifurcations in flows with symmetries
- Scientific computing
My group's research focus is on the non-linear, multi-scale and statistical dynamics of fluid dynamical systems with applications to geophysics, astrophysics, atmospheric sciences, energy and flow control.
Our approach to study these systems spans from theoretical methods to statistical analysis of large data sets from state-of-the-art numerical simulations that we perform on supercomputers.
I am currently teaching the "Mathematics for Energy" course and the "Scientific Computing" course to the DPhil students of the EPSRC CDT InFoMM.
I also do the classes for the undergraduates courses on Viscous Flows, Waves & Compressible Flows, Topics in Fluid Mechanics, Nonlinear Systems and Classical Mechanics.
