I am a fifth year graduate student, and my current research centers on connecting the yield and flow behavior of dense granular assemblies with their particle-level properties. These properties influence the microstructure that develops when external stresses are applied, and by investigating computationally the formation and evolution of these structures, we hope to develop constitutive models that accurately describe bulk behavior.

I am a fourth year graduate student focusing on the dynamics of wet gas-particle systems. Specifically, I deal with liquid transport, agglomeration and reactions in fluidized beds. I am interested in the film formation on particles, the associated heat and mass transfer, and the effect of liquid films on the dynamics of a fluidized bed. I combine well-established computational fluid mechanics (CFD) tools with self-developed granular flow software for a rigorous analysis of these systems.
