This group's research covers a wide spectrum of topics in fluid dynamics. It covers vortex dynamics and turbulence, including basic problems of the Navier-Stokes equations, differential geometric characterisation of Lagrangian stability and possible singularity formation in Euler flows. The group also has interests in engineering fluid dynamics, particularly in microfluidic rheology and in interfacial flows, including the Marangoni effect. Acoustic waves, e.g. digitised speech patterns, are also studied.
