Research in our lab lies at the intersection of environmental fluid mechanics and particle-laden flows, with an appreciation for fundamental fluid mechanics. We study interdisciplinary problems with environmental, biological, and engineering applications. We use a variety of tools including laboratory experiments and mathematical modelling.
We are a part of UW-Environmental Fluid Mechanics (EFM) and Pacific Marine Energy Center (PMEC).
