Our main research interests are on the areas of single-phase transient flows, two-phase flows [violent geysers]), resilient approaches to flood control, optimal reservoir operation under uncertainty, sustainable stormwater management and modeling, real-time control of complex hydraulic systems, computational hydraulics (CFD ) and physical modeling of hydraulic structures. Please select the appropiate area below for the specific topic:

Hydraulic transients (single-phase flows)

Two-phase flows (Violent geysers)

Resilient approaches to flood control

Optimal reservoir operation under uncertainty 
Sustainable stormwater management and modeling

Real-time control of complex hydraulic systems

Computational hydraulics and physical modeling of hydraulic structures
