Areas of Research Interest:

  • Multi Mega-Watt Onshore Wind Turbine: Fundamental study to understand complex interactions of stratification, complex topography and turbulence wind in wake region of wind turbine. This work is done in collaboration with Wind Energy Institute, Texas Tech, Lubbock.
  • Offshore Wind Turbine: The wake of offshore needs to be classified in terms of the dynamics parameters of Wave/Current/Wind interactions. This work is done in collaboraton with NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory).
  • Density Currents: The entrainment of density currents over rough wall is understood from first principles. This work is done in collaboration with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, MA.
