My research is focused on investigating problems in low-Reynolds number aerodynamics.  Topics of investigation include large-eddy simulation (LES), flow stability and transition, and active flow control techniques.  I mainly use and develop computational tools to better understand underlying physical mechanisms as well as uncertainties associated with common mathematical methods.
