My research covers a variety of topics in acoustics and fluid mechanics, and combines experimental, theoretical, and computational techniques. These projects are linked by the fact that fluid dynamics and acoustic waves in fluids both spring from the same conservation equations (acoustics is the linear theory of fluid dynamics). Approximately half of these research projects are collaborative efforts, and involve Profs. S. Ceccio & W. Schultz from Mechanical Engineering, and Prof. M. Perlin from Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. Support for these research projects has come from the Office of Naval Research, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, General Electric, and Toyota.
