Sam grew up surrounded by rain and rivers, and has since nurtured a lifelong interest in fluids, math and physics. Since joining the TESLa group he has studied turbulent combustion through conditional statistics and is driven by the desire to understand and predict fluid motion in all contexts.
Turbulence, combustion, reacting flows, intermittency, energy cascade, coherent structures, computational fluids.
