Research interests

My research is interdisciplinary in nature, it combines fluid mechanics and control theory. Current projects include: optimization of laminar mixing for sustainable manufacturing, simulation of turbulent mixing for prediction of pollutants' dispersion, boundary layer control for drag reduction for sustainable aviation and transportation, pulsed transverse jets for combustion enhancement and energy conservation, control of convective flows for material processing in sustainable manufacturing.
