My main research interest is in compressible flows specially related to wave propagation.
Originally with applications ranging from the damage from rain drops (licentiate thesis) to air-bubbles collapsing due to a propagating shock wave (doctoral thesis). My studies have been theoretical. The equations have been solved numerically. Part of my work has been to modify the numerical methods.
Recently I have been involved in research related to hydropower carried out at our division. We are using Gibson´s method to calculate the flow rate.
My main teaching interest is in fluid mechanics specially and mechanics in general. I am responsible for the course Continuum mechanics (F0030T). I am teaching fluid mechanics in Hydromechanics (F0031T) and Advanced Fluid Mechanics (F7016T). In the first year courses in physics (F0004T and F0006T) I am teaching mechanics, thermodynamics and experimental methods.
