My research work is carried out in a small research team focused on the thematic "Flows for material processing". The studies are oriented towards the analysis and understanding of the physical mechanisms involved in the complex fluid flows resulting from different coupled effects. We then gave interest to convection influenced by magnetic field, ultrasound waves, solidification, rotation effect. My favourite field concerns the study of instabilities and bifurcations, particularly inside heated fluids.
