Hydrodynamic Stability. Mixing layer receptivity - the process by which free-stream acoustic disturbances are converted into incipient instabilities in mixing layers, shear layers and wakes; Flowing thin films and their stability characteristic s.
Magnetoelasticity: Analytical and computational studies of magnoelastic materials in connection with their use in non-contact torque sensing.
EM simulations: Simulations of electric and magnetic fields and finding equilibrium points of said fields. Applications in lecture demo's and in trapping ions for quantum computing.
