Associate Professor of Physics
We use theory and simulation to study far-from-equilibrium dynamics in fluid flows, soft condensed matter, and geophysics. Examples of our research include the impacts of Newtonian liquid drops and granular suspensions, and the instabilities and dynamic jamming of icebergs in Greenland fjords. Much of our efforts challenge the understanding of how and under what circumstances a complex particulate matter can respond to a strong force by flowing like a fluid.
Topics: Impact dynamics, Granular and Fluid Flows
