Research:

My research experience includes general linear acoustics, binary inert gas mixture properties and sound propagation therein, and acoustics in inert gas - vapor systems and systems with multiple phases. These skills necessitate knowledge of heat, mass and momentum transport in fluid dynamic systems; specific systems of which I am familiar include thermoacoustic refrigeration, photoacoustic phenomena, as well as sound generation by vortex shedding.
