In the broad area of complex fluids and complex flows, our research ranges from molecular studies to macroscopic applications . Using rigorous theoretical analysis (theorems in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, kinetic theory and hydrodynamic stability), complex simulations (rarefied gas flows, lamellar mesophase simulations from molecular to continuum scales, large scale turbulent particle-gas simulations) and sophisticated experiments (microfluidics, nano-engineering of catalyst layers). With the objective of uncovering fundamental phenomena and demonstrating their potential impact on applications of the future (microreactors, hypersonic transport, energy conversion systems).
