PhD thesis

My PhD thesis is entitled Physics-based turbulence models for large-eddy simulation. I defended this thesis in public on October 9, 2020.

Projects

During my PhD, I focused on improving turbulence models for large-eddy simulations of incompressible flows.

In particular, I devised a framework of constraints for the construction of physics-based subgrid-scale models.

I also worked on a new subgrid-scale model for rotating turbulent flows.

See Projects for all my projects.
