Alternative Energy & Fluid Mixing seminar series
U of R shield We are grateful for support from the National Science Foundation. We are grateful for support from the National Institutes of Health. We are grateful for support from the Army. NYSERDA
CONGRATULATIONS: Jeff won a Burroughs Wellcome CASI Award, and Doug won a David T. Kearns Faculty Teaching and Mentoring Award.
OPENINGS: Interested in postdoctoral work with us? Funding and projects are available! Email Doug.
WELCOME! Hao joins the team this fall.
PUBLISHED: Flow of cerebrospinal fluid is driven by arterial pulsations and is reduced in hypertension in Nature Communications, Vertical shear alters chemical front speed in thin-layer flows in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Hydraulic resistance of perivascular spaces in the brain in Fluids and Barriers of the CNS, and Comparing free surface and interface motion in electromagnetically driven thin-layer flows in Physical Review Fluids.
UPCOMING: Doug will speak at the Fluid Physics of Life workshop and give two seminars, on turbulence and neuroscience, at the University of Arkansas in November. Logan, Daniel, Ruy, Jon, Jeff, Jack, and Doug will present at APS DFD.

Despite the ubiquity of fluid mixing—think cream in coffee, plankton in Earth's oceans, storm systems in our atmosphere—mixing is devilishly difficult to predict, control, or understand. We study the space- and time-dynamics of flows and the materials being mixed in them. Read more, watch Doug's overview or contact us.
