My research generally falls into one of two main categories, which overlap to some extent:

1.   Fluid mechanics of visco-plastic or yield stress fluids: a range of topics are under study from experimental computational and mathematical perspectives. Fundamental and applied or industrial processes are of interest.

2.   Mathematical modeling and analysis of industrial problems
