Research Team: Turbulence & Instabilities



I study the velocity field scale-dependent statistical properties of rotating homogeneous and confined, non-helical and helical, incompressible turbulence through high resolution direct numerical simulations, in particular a pseudo-spectral algorithm together with the volume penalization scheme for taking into account walls.

Research interests:

  • Turbulence
  • Rotation
  • Helicity
  • Forcing
