Environmental Flow Physics Lab

EFPL @ Columbia University

Our group explores fundamental and applied problems in fluid dynamics and turbulence, with an emphasis on environmental flows. We focus on challenges related to atmospheric boundary layer flow phenomena and wind engineering, using supercomputers and physics-data driven methods.

Our research spans various domains, encompassing turbulence and turbulent transport in urban and plant canopies, urban and complex-terrain meteorology, air-sea interaction, and hurricane boundary layer dynamics.
