Introduction
 


Fluid mechanics is getting more and more attention as serious issues such as energy crisis, pollution, global warming, food supply and health concerns reveal their earthshaking faces. Indeed today's most important challenges are within the scope of fluid mechanics. That's how I got attracted to this field of study.

Each of the icons below will navigate you to the webpage of one of my research subjects. I tried really hard to make each of these a  non-mathematical introduction to my work. Feedback and critiques are always more than welcome.
