I started working as a research engineer at Georgia Tech ME Department in 2003 after earning a Ph.D. in 2002. My main research interests are related to experimental fluid dynamics and thermal sciencies in general. Currently, my major research focus is on the high-frequency flow control tailored to shear layer and separated flows in 2D and 3D configurations. This web-site is intended for public presentation of selected results and accomplishments of both current and previous work, which involved vibration-induced drop dynamics, liquid atomization and spraying, spray cooling, turbulent swirling flows, spray- and flame-based nano-particle formation and coating deposition, and fluidized-bed heat and mass transfer. The highlights of my Ph.D. Thesis research can be found at the Vibration-Induced Drop Atomization web page.
