Background and activities

My Ph.D. research mainly addresses the effect of free stream turbulence on the boundary layer in the context of mixing. It is an experimental approach to investigate how turbulence can be used to enhance mixing. The overall aim is to optimize the mixing of two fluids in a channel by means of adding bespoke free-stream turbulence. To do this, I employ several measurements techniques such as particle image velocimetry (PIV), laser-induced fluorescence (LIF), laser doppler velocimetry (LDV), and so on.

This research is under the supervision of Associate Professor R. Jason Hearst and funded by the Research Council of Norway - FRINATEK.
