Topic

"Seeking Simplicity in the Flows of Complex"

Abstract

Fluid mechanics is a discipline with rich phenomena, spanning a wide range of laminar and turbulent flows, instabilities, and applications in industry, nature, and biology and medicine. I will provide examples of our work highlighting (i) new features of classical nstabilities triggered by changes in geometry, (ii) multiphase flows relevant to the design of liquid-infused substrates exhibiting effective slip, and, if there is time, (iii) unexpected dynamics in flow at a T-junction.
