Research

My research is in experimental fluid dynamics, especially bio-inspired flows such as swimming and flying, energy extraction and wind energy, fluid-structure interaction and flow control. We use high-speed imaging and laser-based techniques, such as Particle Image Velocimetry and Particle Tracking Velocimetry to investigate the flow and vortices produced by manoeuvring wings and near obstacles in order to tackle problems like understanding biological locomotion, producing better flying vehicles, and improving energy harvesting.
