My research blends hydraulics and biology to gain a mechanistic understanding of physical-biological couplings in flow and transport processes, both in laboratory settings and in real-world systems. Specific examples include the collective motion of plankton organisms in turbulent flow, drift of macro-invertebrates in streams, the growth of biofilms in porous media, and blood flow in aortas.
