Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.

    Experimental fluid dynamics to study fundamental fluid flow problems that have direct practical applications. Specific areas of interest include: turbulent shear flows, high-speed jets and the associated problems of compressible mixing and jet noise. Study of microflows and their use in controlling large-scale flows. Development and use of non intrusive flow diagnostics, especially optical methods.
