• The research interests are related to structure of turbulent flows in a variety of applications:
    • Boundary layers, turbulence with polymers and surfactants, particle-laden flows, scalar (heat, temperature, concentration) dispersion in turbulent flows, and others.
    • We develop new experimental methods to measure velocity and velocity derivatives of turbulent flows in Eulerian and Lagrangian framework.
