Born: 1975

Interests: Complex Fluids, Non Linear Hydrodynamics

focus on several issues related to the hydrodynamics of complex fluids, chaotic fluid motion:
- elastic turbulence of dilute solutions of linear polymers
- the solid-fluid transition in yield stress fluids
- the transition to turbulence of a yield stress shear thinning fluid
-drag reduction in plastic fluids
- develop "smart fluids" that adapt their local rheology to the flow environment

Selected publications:
• T. Burghelea, E. Segre, V. Steinberg. Role of Elastic Stress in Statistical and Scaling Properties of Elastic Turbulence. Physical Review Letters, 96, p. 214502, 2006.
