R&D Areas/Projects: 

    My research touches on several related topics of fluid dynamics: reduced-order modeling of flows, aeroacoustics, hydrodynamic stability theory and feedback flow control.

    The main application of these tools has been to high-speed jets - both for noise mitigation and mixing enhancement. Another application has been airfoil separation control.

    Recent advances in experimental techniques and computational simulations generate enormous datasets, and I am interested in analyzing them to reveal the flow physics buried within.
