I strive to understand the phenomenology of mixing of multiple fluids, using theory and simulations.
I currently investigate the mixing of two quiescent fluids
and the resultant transition to turbulence using turbulence models.
Previously I have characterized the kinetic and the dynamic
droplets in a turbulent medium and uncovered the
laws that govern their shape fluctuations, using Direct Numerical Simulations of the Navier-Stokes
