Research Interests

We take a combination of theoretical, experimental, and computational approaches to conduct inter-disciplinary research on physical acoustics and fluid dynamics. Current research interests include:

  • Ocean waves and acoustics (internal tide energy, seismic oceanography, underwater sound propagation);
  • Acoustofluidics (radiation forces, torques, and orbital angular momentum);
  • Acoustic metamaterials.
