OPENINGS: Postdoc, data scientist, and administrator positions are available — email Doug.
IN THE NEWS: Read about our new five-year, multi-million-dollar BRAIN Initiative program.
PUBLISHED: Our paper Laboratory model of electrovortex flow with thermal gradients, for liquid metal batteries has been published in Exp. Fluids. Our paper A bioinspired apparatus for modeling peristaltic pumping in biophysical flows has been published in Bioinsp. & Biomemet. Our paper Cerebrospinal fluid flow has been published in Annu. Rev. Fluid Mech. Our paper Oscillations of the large-scale circulation in experimental liquid metal convection at aspect ratios 1.4–3 has been published in J. Fluid Mech. Our paper The glymphatic system: Current understanding and modeling has been published in iScience.

Fluid mixing is both beautiful and devilishly difficult to understand, predict, or control. We study how fluid flows and the materials they carry change over space and time, primarily with application to cerebrospinal fluid flow in the brain and to liquid metals technologies.
