Research interests:

Koji Ohkitani is working on vortex dynamics as a basis for turbulence theory. In particular, he is interested in numerical studies on singularity formation in fluid flows and on problems specifically devised to test mathematical issues of the fluid equations. He is also interested in its applications to more practical situations.
