Curriculum Vitæ


Area of Research

    Statistical description of turbulence in magnetized plasmas (MHD, Hall MHD, Electron MHD) and in neutral fluids (Navier-Stokes) with applications to solar physics (solar wind, Sun), interstellar clouds (compressible effects), geophysics (large-scale rotating and stratified flows) and cosmology.
