My research focuses on both fundamental and applied topics in fluid mechanics and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Specifically, I work on the following research areas:
- Vortex Dynamics in Unsteady Wakes: i.e., Sharp-edge bluff bodies, Oscillating Panels & Airfoils
- Bio-inspired Propulsors & Energy Harvesting Technologies
- Turbulence modelling of unsteady and quasi-steady wakes: i.e., Non-Linear Eddy Viscosity Model
- Alternative Energy Systems: i.e., Wind, Solar and Geothermal Energy Extraction Technologies
- Aerospace Technologies: i.e., Analytical Model of High-Temperature Vertical Boundary Layers, Magneto-Plasma-Dynamic Thrusters (MPDT)
- Cardiovascular Flows
