UPCOMING:Doug will co-host The Glymphatic System: From Theoretical Models to Clinical Applications in Copenhagen.
PUBLISHED: Our paper “Simple analytic model for peristaltic flow and mixing” will appear in Phys. Rev. Fluids. Our paper “Osmotic swelling via cerebrospinal fluid influx drives cerebral edema formation after cardiac arrest” will appear in Brain. Our paper Formation of spiral waves in cylindrical containers under orbital excitation has been published in J. Fluid Mech. Our paper Brain cerebrospinal fluid flow has been published in Phys. Rev. Fluids.

Despite the ubiquity of fluid mixing—think cream in coffee, plankton in Earth's oceans, storm systems in our atmosphere—mixing is devilishly difficult to predict, control, or understand. We study the space- and time-dynamics of flows and the materials being mixed in them. Read more, watch Doug's overview or contact us.
