Research activities, consulting, patents, etc.:
Development of mathematical techniques that are used to analyze grossly nonlinear problems in fluid mechanics. Examples include atmospheric flows that are produced by the passage of a tornado, and swirling flows that are associated with vortex breakdown.
Viscometric flows of non-Newtonian fluids
Multi-phase flows in porous media
Finite deformations of inhomogeneous materials
