My research field is fluid mechanics and its application in engineering and interdisciplinary fields. In particular, I am interested on the development and application of experimental techniques for the understanding of single/multiphase flow phenomena where turbulence or compressibility effects are present. 

Experimental techniques 

  • Hot-wire anemometry in supersonic flow
  • Velocity measurements in compressible multiphase flow
  • Particle tracking, translation and rotation of large particles

Compressible / Turbulent Flows

  • Heat transfer from cylinders in supersonic flow
  • Shock waves : propagation and interactions
  • Turbulent shear flows, separated flows
