Dear Visitor,

Thank you for visiting this webpage!

You can find here some information about my research and teaching activities. My research focuses on various aspects of fluid dynamics with an emphasis given to understanding and modelling complex unsteady flow phenomena such as wall-bounded turbulent flows, using both computational and analytical tools.

Please find out more using the multiple tabs above.

Happy reading!
