Description of Research

My research interests are in the area of multiphase flow. This includes the experimental and theoretical determination of flow patterns, turbulence and rheological properties of gas-solid, gas-liquid, and liquid-solid systems. These systems incude cold and hot model fluid catalytic cracking units, combusters, gasification units, bubble columns, pneumatic transport piping systems, slurry transport lines, and an assortment of chemical reactors.
