  • Instability and Transition studies related to the onset of separation
  • Intelligent Materials, Morphing, Actuation, Energy Conversion 
  • Bio-inspired methods for smart-wing design. 
  • Experimental techniques for the dynamics of separation in VIV, MIV, TIV
  • Compressibility effects related to unsteady separation in FSI
