Our research group develops and utilizes accurate and efficient computational tools to study multiphase flows in various industrial and research applications. Applications include energy systems, both renewable and conventional (e.g., wave energy converters, wind turbines, fuel injection), fluid-structure interaction (water entry of solid objects), and biomedical procedures (surfactant replacement therapy).
