Turbulent transport of algae in stably stratified rivers: a computational fluid dynamics study

In stably stratified shear flows, turbulent mixing is suppressed by the background stratification. In rivers, these conditions allow buoyant cyanobacteria to float to the surface an more...

Turbulent mixing in stably stratified flow: a laboratory and field based study

In stably stratified shear flows, turbulent mixing is suppressed by the background stratification. This project will examine this dynamic using laboratory experiments and field meas more...

Designing new nano-structured materials for solar energy and health

While methods for making nanostructured materials are often slow or energy intensive, self-assembly of nanoscale objects promises to be scalable and low-energy and could thus propel more...
