**RESEARCH INTERESTS**

Analyzing singularity formation [or the lack thereof] in nonlinear partial differential equations arising as models in 3D incompressible fluid and plasma dynamics. Mathematical theory of turbulent cascades and turbulent dissipation in 3D flows.

Of particular interest
has been the study of *formation*
*of*
*small scales*
and *turbulent
dissipation* in
3D Navier-Stokes equations within a mathematical framework based on
the suitably defined scale of `sparseness' of the near-max
super-level sets of the positive and negative parts of the vorticity
components [in the context of a blow-up-type argument].

Black Rain – an example of art-making using raw turbulence (solar wind) data.

A primer on the Navier-Stokes equations.
