Turbulent flows with variations of density arise in many different areas of science and technology. Combustion of the fuel in a car engine, urban air pollution/smog, convection in stellar interiors, and a draft of cold air from a window are but a few examples. My research seeks to improve our physical understanding of and computational algorithms for turbulent mixing in accelerated variable-density flows through direct numerical simulation and analysis.
