Research Interest: -Boundary layer receptivity and transition under the effect of surface roughness, excrescences and centrifugal forces, using numerical and/or semi-analytical methods
-Large eddy simulations of the atmospheric boundary layer interacting with various surface roughness elements, including wind farms and moving vehicles
-Computational aeroacoustics and large eddy simulations for the prediction of noise generated by launch vehicles during liftup.
