Research Overview

Fluid flows are ubiquitous in nature. In most cases, the fluid consist of more than one components (e.g., dilute polymer solution, dust in air, oil-water emulsions). We conduct state-of-the-art numerical simulations to gain insight in multiphase fluid flow phenomena. The two main direction of research that are currently being pursued are: (1) Binary-Fluid turbulence: We conduct high-resolution simulations to investigate turbulent symmetric binary mixtures in two and three dimensions. (2) Active Matter: We are interested in investigating how collective behavior of animals gets affected by fluid flow (chaotic or turbulent) and how do they modify it.
