My research focuses on buoyancy-driven turbulent flows. I have performed experiments on exchange flows across horizontal vent and vertical vent (think lock-exchange, only a smaller tank). These flows have implications in natural ventilation and fire-fighting as well as other industries. I use standard experimental techniques like particle image velocimetry (PIV) and planar laser induced fluorescence PLIF.

MY LATEST RESEARCH
A video showing reconstructed velocity field (right) using 50 POD modes. Left side of the video is the original velocity field. The flow is buoyancy-driven exchange flow across a horizontal vent.
A Surface LIC plot of first POD mode of buoyancy-driven exchange flow across a horizontal vent.
Buoyant flow across a vertical vent/window. These are PLIF images. Notice that the vortex formation happens only at the top interface.
