Welcome to our group

Research in our group revolves around computer modeling of complex chemical processes on all scales, from micro-fluidics to packed distillation columns,  from applied research involving erosion in process vessels to fundamental physics of flows involving nonlinear dynamics and bifurcations, from development of next generation algorithms for direct numerical simulation of multiphase flows to the use of commercial codes to investigate the dynamics of bubble columns. The primary focus is on the development and use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) on the right scale to develop scalable ,validated models to investigate and optimize the performance of chemical, mineral and pharmaceutical processes, often involving multiphase flows.

Please take a look around!

We invite you to meet our group, learn about our work, and contact us.
