Personal profile

Vision Statement

My research focuses on understanding the fundamental fluid processes that occur in turbulent rotating convection and magnetoconvection, which occur ubiquitously throughout nature. Using numerical and theoretical methods, my goal is to explain the underlying physical mechanisms involved in such processes as the generation of planetary magnetic fields as well as the origin of large-scale flows on planets and stars.
