Environmental Fluid Mechanics Laboratory

The Environmental Fluid Mechanics Laboratory is housed within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University. Our research focus in on fundamental and complex fluid dynamics problems with broad applications in engineering, oceanography and atmospheric science. We use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tools in conjunction with theoretical analysis and experimental methods (as well as collaborative research with field observationalists) to study turbulent flows in both natural and engineered systems. Our emphasis is on fundamental understanding of fluid flow processes in order to develop improved models for turbulent flows.

Some of our current ongoing reseach projects include:

Below is a brief description of the projects I have been involved in the past at the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Lab at Stanford University as well as the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
