Publications

My research interests are rooted in out-of-equilibrium statistical physics, both its fundamental principles and the applications to specific systems. So far, I have focused on turbulence. I studied statistical properties of the dynamics of tracer particles in the flow. In particular, the existence of statistical conservation laws and the manifestations of time irreverisibility, a salient feature of out-of-equilibrium systems. Currently, I am working on a theoretical description of turbulence alongside a large scale mean flow. I use an idealized system in two dimensions, and am interested in eventually describing pipe flows and geophysical flows. I am also interested in the application of field theoretic methods to turbulence.
