- Research experience:
- 10+ years of research in geophysical and general
fluid dynamics and applied mathematics in scientific institutions.
The theory of rotating fluids, including Ekman and Stewartson layers,
the problem of spin-up/spin-down, geophysical vortices, flows
generated by sinks and sources of mass;
Dynamics and stability of quasi 2D shear flows e.i. 2D flows
with bottom friction), including linear and weakly nonlinear
stability theory, secondary vortex interactions, and turbulence;
Numerical simulation and visualization of two-dimensional flows;
quasi-spectral methods and arrays of point vortices;
k--epsilon turbulence models for turbulent Ekman layer;
Theory of turbulent mixing and spectra of passive scalar in two-dimensional
Principal Component Analysis in application to atmospheric and
experimental data, generalizations onto data with gaps;
Theoretical interpretation of data from laboratory
and numerical experiments in fluid dynamics.
